Convert MD Address Book is small Windows 95 utility that converts Mac Mail Drop address books into Windows Mail Drop address books and vice versa.
To convert a file, run the program and click the "Mac to Win..." or "Win to Mac..." button (or select the corresponding menu). It will first ask you to pick the source file, and then specify a destination file. Make sure that you don't try to overwrite the source file. Windows address books have a ".md" extension. Mac address books typically don't, but they are just text files.
There is no Macintosh version of Convert MD Address Book. This functionality is (or soon will be) implemented as a Mail Drop plug-in.
If you have any questions, comments, (constructive) criticism, or bug reports please let me know. You can contact me at the address(es) below.
