Importing vcard that have only email addresses

Postby robertboyl » Tue Jan 28, 2020 1:25 pm

Hello!

Im not sure about standards and if this is really needed, surely it would be nice.

Weve seen a few cases where you import a vCard in GO, which has JUST email addresses and all contacts appear in GO listing blank...

1) Exported in afterlogic webmail

BEGIN:VCARD
VERSION:3.0
PRODID:-//Afterlogic//6.5.x//EN
UID:45424d902f3d
FN:compras
N:;;;;;
X-AFTERLOGIC-OFFICE:
X-AFTERLOGIC-USE-FRIENDLY-NAME:1
TITLE:
NICKNAME:
NOTE:
ORG:;
CATEGORIES:
OTHER.X-ABLABEL:_$!<Other>!$_
OTHER.EMAIL;TYPE=PREF:sales@test.com
END:VCARD

You import in GO its all blank.

I found a workaround, I simply do a find x replace FN to N (generated contacts-test), then import, then it puts folks' name n the contacts listing.

2) Another case, this one exported via icewarp webmail

N:;;;;
UID:443586509bd3
CREATED:20140121T185033Z
REV:20140121T185033Z
DTSTAMP:20140121T185033Z
EMAIL;TYPE=INTERNET,PREF:test@sac.pontofrio.com
END:VCARD
BEGIN:VCARD

Again it brings the contact blank in GO.

Tested in Gmail, for example, it imports all these cases just fine, shows the email address in the listing... Where GO shows it all blank.

So just an idea, if you can, if fields are blank, etc, but there is an email address, see if you can make it be the name that appears in the listing.

Would help a lot and avoid us having to do many find x replaces, etc...

Thanks!

If the contact doesn't have a name it shows blank. You can enable the email address column in the grid to distinct them.

Ahhh. Great. Thank you. That could be a default... The FN one seems was improved.

Merijn,

Please, can you make the EMAIL COLUMN APPEAR by default? That would solve this "issue" we have with several customers where vcard lacks the name and doesnt show anything, shows blank!!

Appreciate it!!!
