BACKUP/EXPORT/IMPORT Your Address Book Within Horde
Once logged into Horde, Click on Import/Export. To save your address book as a backup or for transporting it to another program such as OUTLOOK, use the lower half of the window, use Comma separated values and My Addressbook and click on Export. Then choose Save it to disk, and choose a safe, rememberable place on your own computer's hard drive. We suggest using a filename with today's date (so you can know easily when you saved it), and making the file extension to be .csv (i.e., erase the ".php" part that shows up). A folder at the top level named C:/BACKUPS or C:/Z-BACKUPS ("Z" places it alphabetically at the end to keep it out of the way) is a great place to collect all sorts of saved files like this.
When you need to restore the file to your Horde account, similarly reverse the steps using the top half of the Import Address Book window, and Browse to the file you had saved.
We know of no automatic way to regularly backup (save) your address book, so trigger yourself every month or so to save it. Most Horde systems do not backup the MySQL database system file where the Address Books are securely kept.
