i am having a battle with the Previous Recipients databases on my mac pro and my macbook pro. i am using icloud but i gather there is no syncability for this and i am wondering how folks manage these beasties.


i would like to add them to my CONTACTS in a GROUP so that they are not all dumped into Contacts willy nilly and i would also love to find a way that an existing contact with the same first and last name was able to accept the new email from the Previous Recipient being added instead of creating a whole new contact which i then have to manually sort.


i would also love a way to add the contact in a way that does not require my sorting it into a group after the fact.


ALSO, if i have the same Previous recipient on the databases on my laptop and on my desktop do i basically have to add it on both (so that it shows up as being added) and then delete the second version from Contacts so i don't have two? I MEAN isn't it going to be a /nightmare/ to maintain this database if i add everyone that i want on each of these machines (make them available to all my devices) and then two months down the road i have to add more Previous recipients who show up on both of my computers? this is going to be "add - add - and delete one" ad infinitum, no?


am i missing anything that will simplify this for me?
