I have. As far as I can tell, it hasn't been updated since 2008 and
doesn't work with CSV files exported by recent versions of KAddressbook:
$ ./csv2addressbook.pl --type=kmail --csv=/tmp/addressbook.csv
Invalid field count!
Problem with your exported CSV file
The best I was able to do was to export to LDIF from KAddressbook and
then use Claws Mail's native LDIF importer. As I mentioned before,
this imported the names and e-mail addresses, but nothing else. Now
I'm living in synchronization hell, where I am manually maintaining
both the Claws Mail and KAddressbook address books. (I am not sure I
want to manually migrate the rest of the address book data to Claws
Mail, as the interface is a lot clunkier.)
What I really want is CardDAV support, as this means I won't need to
maintain and synchronize my address book across mail clients or
machines. Instead I can just keep a single address book running on a
Radicale server on my always-on Raspberry Pi, and connect to it from any
CardDAV-capable mail client.
