Hi David,

It is very nice that the new 4.0 release includes support for the
Thunderbird address book as a data source for mail merges, but it seems
to only recognize the "Personal Address Book" and not any other address
books defined in Thunderbird. Is there any way to get it to recognize
additional address books defined within Thunderbird?

As far as I know, this is a current limitation of the addressbook, but
it is either being worked on at the moment, or will be at a later date.
The devs are also trying to get group lists read properly, I think,
because these don't currently import properly (apparently, but I haven't


Why do you want both Personaladdress book and Collected ones? I would say that Thunderbird wanted them to be different so you, the user, can choose which address you "collected" by returning theemail that would go in your personally used address book. MOST of the collected addresses in its list are one-time-only emails. If they are not, then it is up to me to move them over. I see no reason why someone would want an outside package to access the collected emails address for people you may never deal with again and combine it with your personal emails you chose to keep separate from the collected ones.
Another thing that I have noticed when I used Base to connect to my Thunderbird address book: If you create mailing lists within the Personal Address Book, each of these lists appear as separate table. This permits you to separate all of your addresses in one table into smaller tables, one for each specialized list of addresses.
