How can you change this information
Authored by: Ptitboul on Dec 14, '04 07:43:17AM
The information on previous recipients is stored in ~/Library/Application\ Support/AddressBook/ in some obscure formatting. I would like to edit some of these records.

The window from Mail.app only allows to delete records, or to create a new item in the address book (and adding a flag in the "previous recipients" database telling that it has been added to the addressbook.

The modifications I want to make are:
- delete the "in addressbook" flag when the entry has been deleted from addressbook (this is not done automatically)
- change the information about first name and last name (for the case when I want to use the auto-completion feature without adding the address to the addressbook).

The developper's guideline about the Addressbook framework does not seem to explain how to access the "previous recipients" database.
