Synchronizing LiveMail contacts between computers
by Tiradientes - 12/30/09 12:59 AM
I have LiveMail on my machine at home and at work. Sometimes a new mail address or correction comes into one and I want to copy it to the other. Since LiveMail has no way to save a single item and then transfer it, I want to be able to copy the entire "contacts.edb" to my other machine. But since the "users" directories are not quite identical, it doesn't take, LiveMail shuts down and reboots with the old contacts file.
Emptying the contacts and reimporting will not do. For one thing, I have Chinese characters inside the names and addresses, and these are all stripped on the reimport. For another, it seems a time-consuming solution.
"Importing" the file from the other everything just duplicates the entries (and messes up the unicode characters, too).
Is there some easy way to do this? I tried copying both the ebd and the pat files, but they contain directory links particular to each computer.
