Addressbook2pine is a utility that allows you to sync your OS X address book with pine's addressbook. Simply launch addressbook2pine and it will process all of your contacts in your address book and create a tab delimited file readable by pine.
The resulting pine .addressbook file will contain the following values for each field:
|Pine||OS X Addressbook|
|Nickname||Company, Group, Phone, Birthday, Nickname, First Name, Last Name, First & Last name, or blank + optional unique id and optional email id.|
|Fullname||Full name (First, Middle, Last, and Suffix) + optional email id.|
|Fcc||Global fcc path + Contact's Group, Email, or Full Name.|
|Comment||Notes, Company, Group, Url, Phone, or Birthday.|
|Addresses||Email(s) (with optional distribution lists)|
Addressbook2pine can also take all contacts in a pine .addressbook file and import them into OS X Address Book. Each successfully converted contact is then automatically added to a group within OS X Address Book labeled "addressbook2pine" for easy tracking purposes.
Upon detection, Address2pine will extract from each contact of Address Book: name field (first, middle, last, and suffix), email(s), company/organization, and notes. Regardless of whether the card is checked as "company" or not, Addressbook2pine will set pine's nickname field to the card's company/organization name.
Any contacts without an email address are skipped by the application.
Upon completion, the disclosure buttons can be clicked for a listing of successful conversions as well as the contacts that were not converted.
The end result is, a perfectly synced .addressbook file with all your contacts automatically imported!
