Hello,

I would like to know if there is a way to import contacts from Outlook into Jabber?

I know there is a way to import using xml file, but how can I export the contacts from outlook into the xml template?

 

Thanks,

It is possible to export your Outlook contacts into XML format using a tool called "OutlookAddressBookView" by Nirsoft.

The issue is that the tool does not export the contacts into an XML format readable by Jabber. You would have to edit the XML file to make it readable by Jabber. This process would be time consuming but is achievable using the search/replace function in any text editor.

Jabber requires XML files to be in this format: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/vxc/english/vxme/9-3_...

I am looking to do this for the first time and I saw this post.


If this is a cut and past of your format then the issue is that you have the phone number surounded by two end tags

<phoneNumber/>XXXX<phoneNumber/>"


the first tag needs the / removed
