    I've noticed recently that email contacts don't move between the 3 Mail apps any more.

    We have a VPS with 54.0 build 21 installed.
    and are moving clients from an old windows server to this new CPanel.

    I import their mail and then export the address book to a CSV, and import the CSV to Horde Mail. This used to then be visible in Roundcube and SquirellMail (I dont remember what version the old Cpanel reseller account we had was when this worked). but now it is not. I have to also import to Roundcube, and Squirellmail has no import function so any clients that choose to use Squirellmail have to manually move their addressbooks

    Is there an easy fix for this? This has essentially doubled my work when moving clients.

    Hello :)

    Contacts are not shared between individual webmail applications, so you must manually import the contacts into each application, or restrict users to a specific webmail application. SquirrelMail does not natively offer an import/export feature, but some users report success after manually implementing this custom plugin:

    Addressbook Import-Export Plugin - SquirrelMail - Webmail for Nuts

    Documentation on customizing SquirrelMail is available:

    How to Customize SquirrelMail - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    While it won't solve this particular issue, you may also find the CalDAV and CardDAV features helpful:

    Thank you.
