Importing wab adressbook to mozilla

Anyone has a tip on how to import a wab adressbook (from outlook), into mozilla mail?
I've looked for different converters thinking that if I can find one that can convert wab to ldif (a program called dawn can do this, but nly found win-verions).......

"Anyone has a tip on how to import a wab adressbook (from outlook), into mozilla mail?"

When I converted from Windows to Linux about three years ago I had not problem converting my address book from Windows Netscape to Linux Netscape. Later, I easily converted my address book from Linux Netscape to Linux Mozilla. So if you can find a program which converts Windows wab to Windows Netscape you might be able to go:
Windows wab -> Windows Netscape -> Linux Mozilla

Check Netscape to see if it has an import program for Windows wab.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.

Old thread, but nevertheless.. It's still interesting for people migrating to linux.

I had a similar need today, and I've successfully imported WAB address book using a little utility named "libwab" (wabread). Here's the link:

Hope somebody will find this information helpful.
