IslandOwl will become famous soon enough

I have made the grand switch from pc to MBP. Many things I like. Some I am very frustrated over.

I find the "Address Book" to be very, very limited. Am I missing something? Is there a better program for contact management. Here are some of my frustrations:
  1. There seems to be no way to view or print contacts in a list form.
  2. Is there anyway to see the date a contact was added, imported, or changed?
  3. I find I have to hand enter the information piece by piece - that from any other program with the exception of mail, the information will not automatically go into the spaces. For example, if I have an address that is in the form of
    xxx Street
    City, State Zip
    I have to either type it all in piece by piece or copy it in piece by piece. (In Outlook, I could have just copied the whole address and pasted it into the address box.)
  4. I keep addresses current for one of my clients. In Outlook I could have a separate folder with her addresses. I cannot see a way to do that in Address Book.
  5. Similar to the above, I would like to have a section of "Keep In Case" addresses that do not show up in my main address book. I cannot find a way to do that either.

Thanks for any help and advice you all can offer.

Hey owl, I like using microsoft entourage; I find it very user friendly, and I believe a lot of business people use it. Although.. you would have to pay for the microsoft office suite just to get it.. which can be quite pricey.
