Address Book integration in Mail!

One of the things that is much less integrated in Mail compared to Outlook is the Address Book. Outlook combines all the calendar, addresses and mail in one application. When you compare the whole experience of Mail to iLife, the integration is not really good. What you can do to improve it though is to add a "Add Address" button in Mail's toolbar. You'll then only have to click on the email that is from the sender you want to add the email address to your address book and click "Add Address". What is unfortunate is that you won't really get confirmation that it's actually done. You really have to open up address book to see that it is now there. To add the "Add Address" button to your toolbar:

1. Right-click anywhere on the toolbar and choose "Customize Toolbar".
2. Drag the "Add Address" icon to the toolbar.
3. Click "Done".

Use 'Control Click' instead of 'Right Click'. I found that everything worked successfully except that the First Name and Last Name were transposed once placed in Address Book.

This revealed to me the ability to customise the toolbar - mail is much more functional now!

I do not see an "add address" in my icon choices. I have an "address book" but not an "add address."

MariBoyer, mine says "add to adress book". Although, you can click on the address you watn to add and select the Add to Address book option.
