View Full Version : How to Evolution Contacts with Gmail contacts

October 17th, 2010, 05:01 AM
First of all, I don't know if this is the right forum to ask this.

You know that gmail's way of handling contacts is very convenient. It will automatically add the recipients of an email when you send it. So you can use the email addresses in the next times. Is it possible to tell evolution to do the same job? if not, is there a way that to sync my contacts with the contacts in my gmail account. Note that I am using evolution to check my gmail account.

Are you wanting to be able to access your Gmail contacts from Evolution and use the auto-complete email addresses, or just use Evolution contacts for auto-complete?

You can export your gmail contacts, then import them into Evolution. Go to the Settings in gmail for the export, save the file locally, then import it into Evolution.
