We also used one single Palm (an old Palm Vx we had lying around...) to do so 
for all machines where the user didn't have a Palm anyway. We just wiped the 
Palm (hard reset) after each transfer, so no conflicts. Of course, we did 
have to install the Palm *software* on all machines we needed to migrate.

Come to think about it - I made a mistake in my previous mail. Of course 
you're right, the addresses migrated that way do NOT end up in LDAP - I mixed 
things up. What we were after was a migration of the user's personal 
addressbook from Outlook to Kolab, which worked fine this way. The addresses 
end up in the user's IMAP folder for his/her addresses on the Kolab server. 
Sorry if I confused things - I may need more coffee... :-}
