Chapter 16. Address Book > To share your Address Book

To share your Address Book

1.
The person with whom you want to share must be in your Address Book. Her .Mac email address must be on the card in the email field.

2.
From the Address Book menu, choose “Preferences….”

3.
Click the “Sharing” icon.

4.
Put a check in the box to “Share your Address Book.” Wheels will spin for a minute while your Mac prepares for the process.

5.
Click the + sign at the bottom-left of the window. This opens a sheet that contains your Address Book. As mentioned in Step 1, only those people whose .Mac email accounts are listed in the email field will be allowed to share. Just double-click that person's name and she will be added to the list you see above.

6.
If you want to allow that person to edit your Address Book (her edits will appear on your Mac), check the box to “Allow Editing.”

7.
Select names in your list and click the button to “Send Invite.”

8.
The recipient gets an email message like the one shown below. She clicks the link and her Address Book opens and asks if she wants to subscribe. She clicks OK.

9.
The shared Address Book appears in a separated section of the recipient's Group pane, with a different icon. Wow.
