How to Export Contacts from the Mozilla Thunderbird or Netscape Address Book

By

You have all your email addresses and the contact details of your friends, colleagues, business partners, family, customers, mechanics and who not in Mozilla Thunderbird, Mozilla or Netscape. That's great — until you need to have them elsewhere.

Fortunately, Mozilla and Netscape make it fairly easy to export your address book to a format that many (if not most) other email programs and services understand. It's a rudimentary and crude format, but it works.
