• Hi@all,

    the migration of data to Kopano is a frustrating thing. Theoretically it is supposed to work, but in practice it is always complicated.

    The test environment:

    Kopano Core: 8.7.1

    the appropriate script from:

    A small address book exported from Thunderbird and Kolab to CVS. The result:

    • file from Thunderbird *
    root@saturn:~/scripts# ./import_rfc.py -u 'i.eckerter' -f contacts ickerter.vcf 
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "./import_rfc.py", line 30, in <module>
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/kopano/folder.py", line 483, in create_item
        item = _item.item(self, eml=eml, ics=ics, vcf=vcf, load=load, loads=loads, attachments=attachments, create=True, save=save)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/kopano/item.py", line 201, in __init__
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/icalmapi.py", line 211, in parse_vcf
        return _icalmapi.vcftomapi_parse_vcf(self, ical)
    MAPI.Struct.MAPIErrorCorruptData: MAPI error 8004011B (MAPI_E_CORRUPT_DATA)
    • File from Kolab *
      No error but only the first contact is imported.

    The cross check:

    Thunderbird export imported into Kolab -> Works
    Kolab export imported into Thunderbird -> Works
    Both files imported into Google -> works

    In addition I created a VCF export from Google and tried to import it into Kopano as mentioned above. Again, only the first record is imported.

    The only way I have found so far is Read the VCF export to Android and write it to Kopano via ActiveSync.

    This thing still has room for improvement!

    with best
