Import old address book entries into new Mail.app Apps
After upgrading to Jaguar, I found that all my addresses were missing from address book. I found the answer in Apple help:
In previous versions of Mac OS X, addresses you used in the Mail application were added to your address book as temporary cards. Temporary cards are not imported when you upgrade, so these names will not be in your new address book. You can use the Mail application to add the temporary addresses you want to keep to your address book.
So, to fix the problem:
Open Mail, then choose Address History from the Window menu. All the addresses you have previously sent mail to are displayed.

Addresses that are already in your address book have an address card icon next to them. To edit a person's address card, double-click their name.

To add a person to your address book, select their name, and then click the Add to Address Book button.
Easy!
