      Description

      The current implementation of the address book importer and exporter has several problems:

      • Outlook, Yahoo, etc change their formats frequently and the import and export functionality stop working
      • The format varies depending on the language, so the current implementation only works if the user uses the english version of Outlook, Yahoo, etc.

      I suggest making an implementation that is more flexible and allows the user to specify the format to import/export. A good example of a tool that works this way is Horde. In this webmail system the user can import any CSV file that has a first row with the name of the fields. Then it allows the user to specify the correspondence between those fields and the ones in it's own Address Book.
