I am having problems with mac mail address book and address panel. Some of my contacts are entered twice and I want to remove the duplicates. I can't find how to do this. I am new to mac, but know there must be a way. Surely other have made mistakes and need to be erased. Thanks

Open your Address Book application from the Applications folder. Highlight the name|address you wish to remove and then go to the main menu, EDIT. Select "Delete Card".

(Note: You must highlight the name first or the "Delete Card" option will not appear.)

Are the addresses being filled in incorrectly in Mail? If so try the procedure in this thread email address book question. See post number 2.

Thank you both for the replies. Actually I found another method which is far more complicated. It involved using ical to finally delete. I don't know what MY problem was by not seeing the delete card function. Thanks again and in advance for I know I will ask more questions while getting used to the Mac way.
