I am normally given a list of names with emails and other contact
details in a spreadsheet format.

I then would like to import it to a csv format such that evolution or
other mail clients can create a vcard out of.

I'm affraid I've no idea how to coax Evolution's import functions to
pick up the data correctly; but if you're not tied to the data going
through evolution a script to make vcards from a CSV would be pretty
simple [1]. Read the fields from the CSV, print them into a vcard

I'd be happy to help if you think that'll work but don't think you can
do it on your own.


[1] If your source CSV has commas that aren't field searators then it's
a bit of a pain but unless you have particularly hideous abuses of the
comma it shouldn't be a show stopper.
