    Mail auto opens address book
    I'm going insane. Whenever I get a new e-mail in Mail, address book automatically opens. How the heck do I make it stop?!

    Mail opening address book
    Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I just started having the same problem after I reinstalled Lion on my MBP. I also am going insane, so any help would be super appreciated!

    I hope someone answers your post with a solution. Did you notice that you replied to post that was over 6 years old?

    I did notice the age, yes. But this was literally the only other example I could find online where a person was having a similar experience.

    That said, I spent a significant amount of time troubleshooting this problem last night and this morning, and I narrowed it down to a script that was running every time i received a new email. The scripts purpose was to display a Growl notification for each new email received. What I also found out, is that that same script referenced the address book in an attempt to add a picture of the sender to that notification. I removed those lines of code associated with the address book, and I finally was able to resolve my issue.
