Chapter 12. Using E-Mail > Setting Up and Using an Address Book

Setting Up and Using an Address Book

Mac OS X includes the Address Book application, in which you can store all your contact information. The most obvious use for this information is within Mail, but other applications can access the Address Book as well. This is useful because it enables you to use a single contact database for all the applications that can access the Address Book application.

When you open the Address Book, you will see that its window consists of two panes by default. However, this default view isn't as useful as it could so choose View, Show Card to reveal a third pane (see Figure 12.1). At the top of the window, you see the toolbar and search tools. In the lower pane, you see your list of contacts. The bottom pane shows you the information for a contact that is selected in the list of contacts—this is the contact's vcard (which you will learn about in a moment).
