Never tried it.... in fact, I haven't done anything the last couple of years with Mozilla. Does it have a function to import e.g. comma separated files? I could write you an agent to export the addressbook to such a file, but we might get in trouble on the conversion of groups.
Another option is to turn to community support and ask to move this question to the Lotus Notes topic area. Perhaps one of my friends there got the know how. Do include a link to this question for CS....

Mozilla does have an Import comma separated values option.  I am open for any option to get the info moved into Mozilla.

So all we need to do is create this comma separated file.
There are two ways:
- Export the content of a view (none of the existing views hold all required columns, so we'd have to create one, either public or private), or
- Export the content using Lotusscript, from within the addressbook(s) or from another.

The last option could be easiest, since I could provide you with an agent that does that, without having to modify any of the existing databases.

Assuming that we focus on people only (not servers, not groups), I have two questions:
- Are the addressbooks personal ones, public/organization ones of both?
- Do you need fields in a specific order?
- Which fields (fieldnames, labels or description)?

If you are familiar with the notes fieldnames, I may have a notes application that only needs a few modifications to be suitable for the job....
