Hi all.

I have numerous address books/contact lists scattered across my computers and email
accounts. I'd like to consolidate them all (if possible) into one or two main contact
lists. (I have about 150 main contacts on my phone & 400-500 contacts in total).

I currently use my iPhone and my gmail accounts as my main contact lists.
However I sometimes use evolution, (contacts/g-contacts) & I've tried Kontact too.

At the moment I have an old contacts list on evolution, which I use like an archive.
I then use my phone & gmail as a more current/fluid address book.


What do you use ? (apps, programmes, web accounts)
How do you organise your data/contacts lists ?

Do you have one super list with everything on ? Or do you have a couple of different
address books for various scenarios ?

TIA for any help.

A lot of the email clients can export address books as .csv or .tsv files, which could then be amalgated, sorted and so on with a spreadsheet program.
This is only a thought, as I haven't tried it as a detailed process.
