(using Thunderbird v3.1.2)
Hi everyone,
I'm maintaining a non-profit's email list. When I get a new contact, many times I want to have it in multiple address books - like my Personal Address Book, the non-profit's, etc. The new address seems to get deposited by default into the Collected Addresses. However, I can only drag it into *ONE* address book, and I can't easily copy it into another! I can only re-create one from scratch, which is very redundant and time-consuming. ](*,)

Am I missing something, or is there an add-on that would help with this? Thank you very much for any helpful info!

You're missing something. :) Hold down the Ctrl key at the same time as you drag and drop the contact record from one book to another in order to copy rather than move the data.
