This is probably an old and already answered queation, but it has just come up for me. Does anyone know how to export the AOL Address Book/Contact List so it can be imported into the Apple Mail Program? I would like not to have to reinter all the address when I drop AOL.

    You would need to export from AOL to vCards, LDIF, or tab-delimited text file in order to import into Address Book. The OS X Mail application is strictly for email. Address Book is used for contacts. I don't know that AOL is even capable of exporting its data.

    Assuming you are using the AOL program for OS X on your Mac, try the AOL Service Assistant.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The AOL Service Assistant appears to be the answer. It also solves my other problem of how to import AOL favorite places into Safari. I will update the forum after I check it out.

    The AOL Service Assistant works fine for transfering the AOL contacts to the Apple Address Book. However, I was unable to get the AOL favorites to tansfer to Safari. It keeps hanging up with the rotating basketball. Any further suggestions?
