    similar to what i have discovered in my last thread (re import from csv) newly received email addresses, which have an empty star attached, adding to the CardBook result in the old notation:

    “EMAIL: xxx@xxx”

    i.e. the email address is NOT converted to

    “EMAIL;TYPE=???:xxx@xxx”

    a bug or due to compatibility with thunderbird’s email notation?

    ok, it’s easy to understand:
    take for example the email i got as a notification that you wrote to me in this forum. the from line is:

    Cardbook for Thunderbird – Forum <noreply@cardbook.icu>

    on the right side is an empty blue star which marks that this address is not yet in my address book.

    clicking on this line gives me the option “Add Cardbook Contact” and then the option in which CardBook i want to add this contact (clicking on the star only opens the network-wide list, which i don’t want). I choose one of the local addressbooks and the respective CardBook register opens.

    After saving the vCard looks like this:

    BEGIN:VCARD
    VERSION:3.0
    PRODID:-//Thunderbird.net/NONSGML Thunderbird CardBook V37.7//EN-US
    UID:511d6f23-c8d9-4269-ad69-29dcd13cf859
    FN:Cardbook for Thunderbird – Forum
    N:Forum;Cardbook for Thunderbird -;;;
    EMAIL:noreply@cardbook.icu
    REV:2019-09-20T12:22:04Z
    END:VCARD

    well, in my former thread i described in detail what happens when i move a local vcard to the address book which is synchronised with my server: my open-Xchange server changes the vcard in order to conform with the requirements of vcard 3.0 and therefore adds more – unwanted – lines.

    i don’t know what a screenshot would help to this problem besides the examples already in the thread.

    but thanks for trying to understand.
