Thunderbird will export data as an LDIF (LDAP Data Interchange Format)
file. This is what can be used at the command line to import into the
LDAP server (ldapadd command). I believe you can then point Tbird to
use the DAP server for the addresses. There would not be a need for
synch'ing in this scenario. If you use other mail clients, then,
depending on the choice, you may still have an issue.
