    I have this new iMac and I need all of this information from Palm Desktop to be on it. I have it all on a PC so how would I go about transferring the information over?

    If I go to File, Export, Contacts will that file work with the Mac version?

    Do you have a palm PDA? If so, the easiest method might be to sync your PDA with Palm desktop on your PC, and then sync the PDA with your mac using isync, this should then transfer all your contacts from your PDA to the address book on your mac.

    Ok, as long as it won't overwrite my palm. I'll give that a try tonight, thanks.

    I believe that the first time you sync it gives you the option to either merge the info on the pda and computer, to overwrite the info on the pda with that from the computer, or to overwrite the info on the computer with that from the pda.

    If you go into Conduit Settings you can specify what happens when you sync.
