    Hello, I am having a problem with the new mail in mac os x 10.7. I write a lot of emails, and it really helps to be able to look for the email of someone in the address book in mail itself, just like I could in SL. I see that I can begin typing the name of the person that I want to email, then it will find and finish the email, but there are some times when I do not remember the names of all of the people that I have to email. Is there a way to get the address book built into mail just like it was in SL?

    Thanks for the help. I am sure that it must be something obvious, but I cannot find it right now.

    I'm not sure what you mean. The address book is still integrated in mail. Also when you compose a new message you can click the icon that looks like a silhouette of a person to open your address book

    Where's the silhouette icon? I don't see it in my Lion Apple Mail set up. Is it only available in classic view?

    You might have to hit View>Customize Toolbar… to find the silhouette icon for bringing up the little address window. It's there (and thank goodness has the old interface rather than that tacky book thingee regular Address Book has).
