[Turba 1.2] To store multiple addresses in a single address book entry you must create a "list". You start by creating single entries for each address you want in the list, just as you normally would do for any other entry. Then, from the browse view, list those entries and click the checkbox to the left to each name you want in your list. Next, select New List from the slection box in the upper right corner of the browser window, and click the Add to button. You will be presented with a window asking for the name of the distribution list to create. Type the list name, and click on the OK button, and you list should be created.
To add addresses to an existing list, preceed as above but select the existing list new instead of New List from the list selection box.
Note that the number of addresses that will fit in a single entry may be limited by your installation.
[Turba 1.1] While it is sometimes possible to fake some limited list support in Turba 1.0 or 1.1, this procedure may cause problems and therefore it is recommended that you upgrade to Turba 1.2 to get proper list support instead.
[Turba 1.2] Click one the Turba Browse icon in the top menu bar. Then select the address book you want to browse, and click on the Show button. In some large address books, the number of entries returned may be limited.
[Turba 1.1] Go to the Turba search window. Select "Name" in the "Find" field. Leave the "Matching" field empty. Select "My Address book" in the "From" filed. Press the Search button. You should see all the entries in your address book listed.
You probably have not selected your default address book in IMP. In IMP, use the Options button to access your preference. Select Address books, then select your address book under Choose the address book to use when adding addresses.
[Turba 2.1-RC1 (perhaps earlier)] Shared address books are available in current versions of Turba. Any user can create a new address book and set the appropriate permissions on it to make it shared. To enable this, make sure the 'use_shared' => true option is enabled in .../turba/config/sources.php.
While there is no native shared address book functionality in Turba, Turba does support external ldap address books, which can be shared.
Many times people want to delete all their contacts, or a large number of contacts, in one simple operation. At this time, there is no way for the user to do this in Turba. You must delete them one by one.
If you have a large number of contacts you want to remove (from a bad import for example), you may want to contact your system administrator and ask if they can delete them for you at the backend level (sql, ldap, etc). Many times the administrator can quickly and easily remove all entries for a user at this level. However, not all administrators can, or will, provide this level of service.
In the next release of Turba you should be able to easily delete multiple contacts easily.
