    Hi all

    My boss has just bought a new MAC with windows. I was sorting out the address book - tidying it up, deleting duplicated entries - doing lots of changes and when I started to try and create a group but got a message saying the database is corrupt. Now this message comes up all the time. Does anyone know what I've done wrong and how I can put it right please?

    You could try to single out which vCard is the culprit (drag contact one-by-one to Desktop, remove it, and keep going until it works..).
    Or you could export all contacts (drag to desktop), delete ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/ and start over.
