Hi! You say you have a new Mac, but your info says you are running OS 9. Are you actually running Tiger on a new Mac?
Well if you are running Mac OS X Tiger on a new Mac and you are using the Apple Mail program, you can add the sender of an email to your Address Book by clicking on Message in the top menu bar while in Mail and reading the new message, and then choosing "Add Sender to Address Book". You can also use the keyboard shortcut listed in that menu.
I hope this answers your question.
well, ...i just clicked on anything to get started on these discussions,....i tried to edit that item on my profile but it didn't let me....so whenever i start a post i always start off by saying ...i just bought a new imac ...so's whoever reading my post will assume i made a faux pas in filling out the new registrant log in profile page.....
thanks......now how about if there is a whol list of people in say...the Original message below the body of the email and you recognize several people in the list and you want to add those particular individuuals....i click on that email address but the add sender is in grey tone lettering and then i can't add them...what gives?....this is where i like my old pc since there is right button left button for this purpose as opposed to the one whole button push-down mouse effect of my new mac's mouse...
thanks guys... i updated my profile ....
..... but i still don't know how to add people to my address book like i used to so easily with my pc..... i haave the standard apple mouse that has two side buttons and a teeny little scrollball on the dorsal surface of the mouse and i believe that the whole mouse is pushed down for a clicking action (no right or left click buttons exist) ..... forgive me but i haven't read the manual re:apple's mouse ...can someone give a link on this? ..and is there such a thing as R and L click on such a mouse?....
On the "Mighty Mouse" (which IMHO is far far from it) you just left and right click exactly the same as you would on any other mouse. It's just that Apple considers the buttons untidy and so has used touch sensitive pads instead. Read more here.
I'm struggling to understand your issues with Address Book. Within Address Book: to add a new person type Apple N (⌘ n) or click the + symbol at the bottom left of the contact pane.
Within Mail: Type a new address in to the To or Cc space then send/save the email. Next time you look at this message there will be a blue shade behind it and a little arrow. Click the arrow and choose Add to Address Book.
I suppose the gripe here is that within Mail you are presented a cut down Address Panel rather than the full blown Address Book application. Why not leave your views for Apple here after noting your issue I agree and so have duly whinged to Apple in this way myself.
