NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     conv_alias	- convert MediaMail aliases to Netscape	Address	Book

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     conv_alias	reads $HOME/.zmailrc for MediaMail aliases and adds any	new
     aliases to	user's Netscape	Address	Book.  If the alias already exists in
     the Address Book as a user	or list, the alias will	not be added and a
     message will be printed.

     conv_alias	does not alter $HOME/.zmailrc. It updates
     $HOME/.netscape/address-book.html,	or creates it if it doesn't exist.  A
     backup copy of the	Address	Book(s)	is taken before	any modifications are
     done ($HOME/address-book.html.original or $HOME/address-book.html.nn, and

     If	you previously ran Communicator	4.x, you will have to import the
     address-book.html file manually before you	will see the MediaMail aliases
     in	your Address Book.  To import, select Communicator -> Address Book.
     In	the Address Book, select File -> Import.  In the Import	address	book
     File Finder dialog, select	$HOME/.netscape/address-book.html.

     Since Netscape Address Book entries are typically more descriptive	than
     MediaMail aliases,	after conv_alias is run, it is recommended that	the
     user go into the Address Book and at minimum, update the "Name" field.
