Since installing Snow Leopard, I have had several incidents where apple mail app substitutes the name of a contact (on an email I have received) with someone else's contact information. For example, "John Smith" is cc'd in the email that is sent to me, but "Bob Jones"'s name and contact info from my address book appears in mail. The same email on my iphone does not exhibit this problem and shows the proper information. This is particularly troublesome because if I reply all without noticing the problem, the email thread goes to an unintended recipient.
Issue #2: A similar but different issue has also occurred. Address book app has mixed up the contact detail for multiple contacts. So, mutliple contacts show the wrong contact detail. Shortly thereafter, address book crashed and when it re-opened the problem was no longer occuring.
Anyone else experiencing issue #1 or #2? Any help?
