I use a lot of Mailing lists, and have several different Address Books as well. I've discovered I need to have the same contact in two different Address books, so that I can add them to two different Mailing Lists. Can I copy/paste a contact from one Address book to another? Or duplicate a contact and move the copy to another Address book??

Chosen solution

Move contacts between address books by drag and drop; hold the Ctrl key while dragging to copy instead of move. If you add a contact to a mailing list by drag and drop, the contact is copied to the list, but isn't moved from the address book.

Thanks!!

I also found that by dragging an email from one Address book into a Mailing List associated with another Address book, the contact is copied into both the mailing list AND the new address book.

So many solutions! All is good!!! :)
