     the only thing I can do is automatically add the entry on filters…

    That could work. It is what the Account setting > Junk Setting > Trust Junk Mail Headers set by {SpamAssassin} or others does: automatically adds a Filter to the Account (in addition to turning on the label)

    Cardbook is nearly there with the Filter creation dialogue that provides to create a filter using “Cardbook from” > “All Cardbook addressbooks”.

    Reviving this old topic. In TBird 91.02 and CB 70.9, this still appears to be the situation: Cardbook does not provide a way to exclude from junk, addressess that are in CB.

    While I can build specific filters, I have a number of email accounts and it is a bit of a chore that could be avoided if CB had this feature.

    Well I learned something! I was not aware of the toolbar button as a separate entity from the tab.

    It allowed me to delete some old Nextcloud address books. These did not show up elsewhere.

    I am reviving this old thread. My Cardbook address book is vCard 3.0.

    Should I upgrade to vCard 4.0 to remain current with the CardBook default?

    If so, is this a simple conversion (re-save the Cardbook entries as vCard 4.0) or a more complicated conversion?

    To answer my own question: With multiple addressbooks, TbSync does sync with Nextcloud. DAVx5 on an Android phone syncs to the phone. The Contacts app picks up the address books as a consolidated list of All Contacts without user intervention. However, it is slow (several hours at this point).

    OK. This worked.

    1. In the old profile, Export existing Cardbook Address books as *.vcf files. One for each Address book.
    2. In the new profile, Import each *.vcf to create a new Address Book. The sequence is New Address Book>Local>Open Existing>Select the exported *.vcf.
    3. Re-select the colour

    What would be an improvement is that the colour travelled with the address book VCF Export file.

    This ‘solution’ could be added to the Wiki.

    There must be a better approach. I have 16 address books, all in the directory [my_old_profile]\*.mab and also as [my_old_profile]\cardbook.

    I guess one approach is to collapse these to a single address book and use the Category feature of Cardbook to segregate the addresses. Then export and import.

    I tried installing Cardbook in the new (empty) profile and copying over the cardbook and mab files from [my_old_profile]. This does not work.

    I wonder if a server approach would be better. Can I change to a “server” cardbook repository and preserve the current multiple address book configuration? How?
