hmmm it looks quite ok. It runs until it comes to step where it wants to 
write the cards back to the imap server...
To test if it is a problem with your imap server you can download 
Hamster... its a easy-to-use open source imap server for win, where u 
just unzip add an account and start the imap server. Thaty what I had to 
do since my imap server has the @ and % problem.
On a side notice: the extension does no "real" sync check right now to 
see which address book entries are on the server already, it just copies 
all cards that do not have a custom4 field to the imap server... so i t 
may happen that it does not find any "new" cards to write.
