How do you make one email the prime email in an address card?

    In my Groups I have a lot of address cards with multiple emails, sometimes multiple work emails as well as Home. How can I "choose" which email address is used for a certain card in a particular group - maybe that same card being in more than one group and it needing to "use" a different email address for different groups?

    I have this request, too. Also, if there's a way to use the priority email and address in Safari's autofill.

    Ah, Found it!

    Thanks to macworld!

    In Address Book go to edit - edit distribution list. Go to any group and the names in the group are shown with the email presently used highlighted, and other alternatives in grey. Click on the ones you want, hit OK, and it is done!

    You used to be able to do this with a key press in pre-Lion OS X. Now, because of the non-functional UI, you need to open a dialogue with the same information shown in a functional UI in order to manage your data effectively. A non-dressed-up interface should be an option (if not the default) for this important element of the OS. These locked custom skins are ruining OS X for me.

    Sorry, OT rant...
