that Evolution will recognise, and if so... what are they?

So, if these are phone fields, they are probably being imported and saved.  
The display just doesn't know how to display If you can send me any cards
that it doesn't recognize (you can save individual cards from evolution
and then attach them as emails,) I can probably figure out why it doesn't
recognize them and fix it.  You can send them to me only if you don't want
to send them to the list.  You can also just send me the entire list if
you prefer that.  Either way is fine, but individual cards is easier for

If this is true, then how do I scrub my current contact database in
Evolution so that I can import the new ones?

rm $HOME/evolution/local/Contacts/addressbook.db

Thank you so much. This is really making Evolution into something that
I can use seriously. One caveat though is that the contact list isn't

Sounds great.  I look forward to the information.
