Unwilling to wait for someone to come up with an AppleScript to export my Entourage contacts into the new Jaguar Address Book, I found a workaround. Although it is not possible to export one’s Entourage contacts as vCards, you can convert them into vCards that can be imported into Address Book. Here are the steps:

1) Open the Entourage address book
2) Select all your contacts
3) Under the Contact menu, select, “Forward as vCard”
4) Send the message to yourself
5) Save the attachments (all your vCards) to a specific folder
6) Open the Jaguar Address Book and import the folder of vCards

That’s it! Now you can take advantage of all the new features that make use of Address Book without having to re-enter all the data you have amassed in Entourage.
