I must be missing something very obvious, but I can't seem to set Address Book to add all new contact info as "Work" entries.  Frustrating now, because I have to edit every new entry and change all the fields from "other" to "work."  This appears to happen when I "grab" phone or email info from an email message.

    Are you adding them manually or are they created automatically from poeple you reply to?


    If manually then there should be a problem, just select the Main contact list to put them in. If they are auto entries from replies that is how the address book works and I don't thing you can change that.

    Thanks ...  Couple of things:


    -- what is the Main contact list?  Not sure I follow.  You're probably suggesting that I pick an appropriate gropu?

    -- and typically this happens when importing information from Mail. Click on signature information or the address token in the header and when Address Book populates either a new or existing contact with the entries, the new fields will all be "other."


    Essentially I end up having to edit every addition to Address Book.   Messy
