forgot to write it says I can export as:
file Type:
Comma-separated value (CSV)
Tab-delimited text (TXT)
LDIF Format (LDIF)

I don't know what any of this means.
Once i export do I then import in mail?
Do I go to file then import mailboxes?

From the Address Book Help:

Importing contacts from other applications
Address Book can import contact information that you have saved or exported from other applications in vCard, LDAP Interchange Format (LDIF), tab-delimited, and comma-separated value (CSV) formats.

So use the LDIF or CSV export, then import them into Address Book (not Mail) by going to File->Import... and then selecting your exported file.

Something else to try: AOL Service Assistant

http://daol.aol.com/software/mac/

Look for "Tools" lower right of the web page. I think that the AOL Service Assistant may do what you want with less fuss than exporting/importing.


I used the Service Assistant a few years ago & it worked quite well.
