I found my own answer here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/26632/how-can-you-email-an-address-book -group-to-another-mac-user
no need to reply.
I would like to manage a client's Address Book list on my computer, but I'm afraid it will merge with my Address Book. Any tips? There is a doctor who I do some work for and I work from home. She wants to put her file in a dropbox on the cloud, have me open it at my home mac, and update her list. Do I need to use a database program for this? Maybe there's a way I can add a "user" to my address book for this doctor and manage her list that way.
