Google Contacts is fantastic. Please keep on working on it.
Coould you add more elaborate options to convert postal addresses, so one can use this format, for example (used on HTC Desire, and probably other Android phones):
*Address*
*City*, *State/Province* *ZIP Code*
*Country*

Also, Google Contacts does not fill out needed fields online, but just "Address 1 - Formatted" (in google .csv export), while it leaves other fields (Street, City, PO Box, Postal Code, Country and Extended Address) empty.

After synchronizing first name and last name fields become empty in thunderbird. "derive first name and last name from display name" works fine for 1 word for first name and 1 word for last name, it´s not always happens (my last name has 2 words for example)

If I restore from backup the contacts in google, then in thunderbird many contacts (almost all) with 2 mail address will have the first address OK, in the secondary mail address field also the primary address. I fixed it editing ALL contacts in google (and saving them without changes).
Happens in gmail and in google apps.

Dear Ogi san

Thank you very much for this excellent add-on which I have just discovered, it does exactly what I was looking for ! I hope you will be able to continue improving it in the future.

One suggestion for the "Derive Last Name..." feature: provide options for field order (first name + last name or last name + first name)

Many thanks again.

One more suggestion, it would be nice in the "Groups mapping" to be able to either

- exclude "Other" contacts, i.e. synchronize all the people under "My Contacts" as well as all the groups. This way it would not synchronize the automatically added addresses, as well as contacts added without an e-mail address (e.g. when using Picasa people).

- or, alternatively, provide an option to select multiple groups to synchronize which would allow me to do the same thing.

Thanks!

If the login name is "recent:xxxx" then the app will not log in.

So, I cannot use it, because I have to leave all my email apps that use the gmail POP3 protocol set to "recent:" in order to have access to all emails at all sources.

To ayespy:

Open option and add your email address(including "@") to Accounts section. And if recent:xxx is shown in the section, uncheck it.
