[Evolution] How do you import mail folders and address book from Mozilla ?

I am using Mozilla build id 2002040813 which comes with redhat 7.3.
I want to move to Evolution, but need to import my mail folders and address book.

When I use the auto-import utility in Evolution ( FILE>IMPORT>IMPORT DATA AND SETTINGS FROM OLDER PROGRAMS), it doesn't see mozilla so I can't import anything !!!.

When I use the manual import utility in Evolution ( FILE>IMPORT>IMPORT SINGLE FILE) , it doesn't see any of the mozilla files, which are hidden by default as the mozilla folder has a "." infront of the file name.

I have looked everywhere for an answer how to do this---is it possible I am the only person in the world to have ever asked this question ???

Anyway, I have partially answered my own question here as follows:-

To import the mail folders, make a copy of the ".mozilla" folder as a new folder named "mozilla" without the dot infront, then manually import one by one all the folders using the above IMPORT SINGLE FILE option. (By the way, where is the templates folder in Evolution ?)
To import the address book, I don't know how to do this at all !!
I will do another posting if I manage to work out how to do it.
The latest version of Mozilla has an export address book utility, so I am going to try exporting to ldif format, andfreimporting iti in Evolution.

All I can say is that Evolution had better be good, because I will need an efficient e-mail response to make up for all the time I am wasting during the migration to Evolution.
