How can I delete all of my mail addresses? I have thousands and many duplicates I want to start fresh.

iMac, iOS 6.0.1

    If its just to get rid of duplicates you can use "Look for duplicates" from the card menu to merge them but if you realy want to delete them simply click on one contact, choose select all from the edit menu and hit delete.

    What happens when you highlight an address and go to the edit menu, do you have "delete card" or is it greyed out?

     

    You could also try deleting the files for Addressbook. Go to your suer folder, then Library, then Application Support and trash the Address Book folder. Restart Mac and open your Address Book, should be blank.
