    My dad wants me to import a somewhat large amount of contacts from his Comcast Webmail address book into Address on his iMac and PowerBook. Currently I am logged into my account on Comcast to test things out... I exported my contacts to my desktop as an LDIF file. I tried importing that file into Address Book, but an error message saying "No importable cards were found." showed up. I did export the contacts correctly, so why is Address Book not accepting the import?

    Thanks for the help! :)

    You might try Apple's Address Book importer. If that doesn't work, then I'd suggest exporting the contacts in vCard format and importing the vCard file(s).
