    having problems with ichat and address book
    I was trying to upload an email list of 22,000 into my address book, and it froze up address book. Whenever I click on one of the addresses to delete to try to clear it up, it freezes. And ever since that happened, ichat won't work. I don't know what to do, I have access to address book so I can do some stuff to fix it, I just don't know what. I am a fairly new mac user, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Why do you have 22,000 e-mail addresses?

    There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

    Seems to me some kind of mailing list software is a better option than Mail.app

    You can look in /Library/Application Support/Address Book and delete everything there. It should wipe your Address Book.
