Transfer ICQ contacts from one account to another
« on: 27 03 2018, 16:09:43 »
I lost the password to my old account and created a new one.
Re-Adding all of my >100 contacts is quite time consuming.
I wonder if there is an easy way to migrate all my old contacts to the new account?

You can try search saved password in the database (Database editor -> Settings -> ICQ_1 -> double-click "Password" setting)

Easy way to migrate contacts from one account to another:
- go to Account manager
- delete new ICQ account from Miranda
- click on original account (the password from which you lost) and replace old "ICQ number" and "Password" by new ones

Maybe you also should request auth from every contact, because they have not authorized your new number. I just checked - it worked (after the contact authorized me, and I authorized it, we see each other online).

Thanks! This seems to work indeed.
However I don't see an option on the contacts to ask for authorisation? In the old miranda-im I could see that in the context menu. Now I only see "Add to Server List". Is this implicitly asking for authorisation in the background?

Also in the old miranda-im I had the problem that server list sync did not work most of the time. When bulk syncing out of sync contact list the icq server blocked my old account at least once.
