Look at abook for a simple addressbook written for mutt.  Its manpage 
says that it can use the --convert option to import different formats, 
including csv files.

It's not graphical, flash, fancy, and doesn't use the mouse, but it 
works - sort of like mutt, in that respect :-)

Also, take a look at the lbdb package - it might be of interest to you.  
I don't use it personally (yet), but have heard good things about it 
from others on this list.

Hope this helps,

It may stop, it may not.  And stop calling me "dj".
