Hello MacForums members!

I've been a bit of an idiot and somehow accidentally deleted my address book app - and from the trash as well!

Now, Apple tells me the snow leopard disc is in the mail, but is anybody able to give me any hints on how to restore it in the meantime?

Thanks!

Try Pacifist to extract Addressbook.app from the installation DVD.
