How Do I Export All My Contacts?

I've got contacts saved in my inbox.  A couple of things, 1) I only see them when I use RoundCube, not in Horde at all.  2) when I attempt to export all, only 1 contact gets exported. 3) I've attempted to sync to Outlook using IMAP and POP but the contacts do not show up.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for posting your question regarding exporting all your contacts using the Webmail client RoundCube. I'm sorry to see that you are experiencing issues with this. The export of contacts will indeed export all the contacts, however, the format of the exported file does limit the ability to view them. In my test, I opened the file on my Windows 10 computer and I was able to progress through each contact, as I added each one to my Windows Contacts. I was also able to open the file using Sublime Text, which displayed all the users exported. Unfortunately, the contacts do not sync over the webmail clients automatically. This is because they are kept in separate databases. 

As well, only the CardDav feature of cPanel would give you the ability to share contacts across email clients, however, this is only functional on Apple devices. cPanel advised that this is the only operating system that functionality has been tested on. You could try it in Outlook but it may not be fully functional since cPanel has not tested it in the Windows environment.

I hope this helps!
