I'm currently using V6 and have been unable to import Google Contacts. I'm also trying a V7 trial and trying to set up a CardDav synchronization with my Google Contacts or to import them. None of it is working.
When I try to import Google contacts, I get the error message "[Google Import] Login failed". (When I create the address book, I specify that it's associated with Google Contacts). I've also tried setting the Proxy under Options/Network&Administration, but all it does is cause a several minutes delay before I get the error message.
When I try CardDav and do a manual synchronize, it hangs perpetually without doing anything.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or failing to do?
I've found the answer. In case anyone else has the same question, the answer is simple. I was mistakenly trying to set the address book to be associated with a CardDAV server. The correct way is to associate it with Google Contacts. It works perfectly and synchronizes my address book with my Google Contacts.
