I tested rainloop 1.10.1 on my Debian Wheezy; I tried to import a CSV file, which was exported from Thunderbird 38.7.2. But, I failed. Nothing can be imported.
The CSV file is written in Japanese, which might have caused the problem.
As a trial, I replaced the top line (in Japanese) with its English counterpart. Then, only e-mail addresses have been imported, whereas Name, Phone, etc. have not been imported.
As another trial, I converted the CSV file, which was originally in Shift-JIS code, into UNICODE (UTF-8). But, nothing has been imported.
Could you help me?

A csv from thunderbird with German headers does not work. Replacing the header with the following (taken from a post here) works flawlessly.
