Chapter 14. E-mail > Managing E-mail Addresses

Managing E-mail Addresses

You need some easy way of keeping track of people’s e-mail addresses, names, and other personal information. Mac OS X provides a separate Address Book application that works with OS X Mail, but is not actually a part of the Mail program itself. This is a nice feature, because it lets you access your address book at any time to look up names, addresses, phone numbers, and so on, without having to start OS X Mail.

Address Book entries are commonly known as “cards,” both because this mimics the idea of business or Rolodex cards, and also because this is the format that many people are familiar with from Microsoft Windows systems. The next few sections explain how to create Address Book entries, edit existing entries, and how to import Address Book information from Microsoft Windows VCF (Virtual Card File) entries, such as those often found attached to mail sent from Windows users.
