Easily create new Address Book Smart Groups Apps
To quickly create a Smart Group in Address Book without using the menu option, or if you don't use keyboard shortcuts often:

Hold down the Option key, and the plus sign in the Groups column (lower left button) changes to a Smart Group icon.

[robg adds: This behavior carries over from iTunes and iPhoto, both of which work in the same way. I thought we'd documented the Address Book behavior here before, but I couldn't find it in the system.]

Another Address Book hint:

If you have entries with multiple e-mail addresses, you can pick which address is e-mailed in a group by going to:

Edit -> Edit Distribution List...

A list of the currently selected Group in Address Book will pop up (you can select a different group in this dialog if you wish) along with all the names & e-mail addresses in the right-hand pane. Just click on the preferred e-mail address for each each person and click on "OK"

A lot of people probably know this, but its something that took me awhile to find.
