Re: [K12OSN] evolution

Hi Gavin,

Thanks for the info however there are some obstacles !!
1) Evo 1.4 does not have an export function
2) In the process of upgrading my server from k12ltsp 4.1.1 to 4.2.1 it was destroyed I only have the content of the directories
3) The files in those dirs cannot be read/imported by evo 2.0.2

That said I did find a quick way of getting the contacts transferred.
1) Select all contacts in Evo 1.4
2) From "Actions" select Forward Contact
3) Send email to yourself
4) Retrieve attachment
5) In Evo 2.0.2 select import
6) From single file & point to attachment
7) Select vcard
8) And that's it !!!

I just wish the rest was as easy
