    It's a separate application in your application folder.

    Yup the brown book is your address book, mail uses some database within the OS to read data from that address book library. Which will come up as you type in names etc "dad" will come up and will suggest emails you have under "dad"

    Also take a look at the Applications folder (while Finder is active, either click the "Applications" shortcut in the Sidebar, or press CMD+SHIFT+A, or go to Menu Bar > Go > Applications) to see, what applications you have.
    There is also an Applications folder shortcut in the Dock, on the right side of the Dock separator.
    And then also have a look at the following to learn more about Mac OS X:

    PS: OS 7 is not Mac OS X 10.7, as the "X" the Roman numeral for "10", and OS 7 is fifteen years or so old.

    Great thanks. I am not familiar with command keys and shortcuts, never having learned them, but will take a look.
