Ditto. This seems like an absolutely useless feature of editing Address Book Entries without user approval. And for people suggesting "Use Last Names" , how about this novel concept - Let s/w work around humans and not the other way round.

You can. You've just got to get a human to program it to work that way: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

I have found a solution to this problem, but your suggestion is very sensible. I have actually provided feedback on this issue to Apple after reading your suggestion.

The solution to this problem is to disable Previous Recipients in Mail.app and clear the history. More details can be found here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/38136/2698

The solution mentioned in the above link works, but does more than what I asked for (not really good in this case) My problem was to "disable Mail from updating Address Book".
* Disables Mail from updating address book
* Disables Mail from auto-completing addresses from previous sender's/receipients'
Is there a solution to just do the first and not the second.

Sorry to disappoint you, SayWhat0, but unfortunately this is not possible. Apple did not include such a setting and this solution is what I'd call a workaround really. It solves the problem, but as you've mentioned not without drawbacks. I believe there is no other way to resolve this at the moment.
I have already reported the issue via this link http://www.apple.com/feedback/mail.html
All I could suggest is to do the same and hope Apple will introduce a setting for this.
