I'm getting a bit annoyed at having my address book split between
Personal Address Book and Collected Addresses, with an attempt at
getting a Master Combined address book not too successful

Can someone tell me the sequence/commands to combine the disparate
collections under a single umbrella?

At some stage I'll also need to bring over an Evolution address list -
big file.
Interesting question/need.

The only idea I have is to have a common master address database which
in turn is then used by the different (mail) applications.

It might also be possible to "combine" the different back ends into one
front end. But not without major programming efforts, as far as I can
judge. Curious what other people think.

However, in a first effort, I'd try to get rid of the "Collected
Addresses" data in Thunderbird by merging them into my Personal
Addressbook and accordingly changing the destination under Preferences >
Composition > Addressing - "Automatically add ..."
But it's only a workaround.

Problem is, that collected address book contains everyone you've sent an
email to.  Do you really want all them in your main address book?  Just
add the people you want to your main book and occasionally clear out the
collected addresses.
