Hello All-
I just emailed myself a V-Card from my OS X address book. Simplemail 4.3 ha=
ndled it just fine as far as displaying the card inside the In/Out box. The=
 card displayed just like it would had it been in the Names application.
The problem is, there doesn't seem to be a way to "Put Away" V-Cards to Nam=
es directly or indirectly for that matter. When I go to "Put Away" in the T=
ag menu, the only option is to put away to Notes. I tried that and received=
 an error message and I thought for a moment I might have corrupted my Note=
s soup. However, I was able to go to the Overview, and delete the offending=
 note. Everything seems find now. Also, the text in the In/Out box when loo=
king at the V-Card is static and can not be selected in any way.
Has anyone else tried this or run across the limitation? Is there a solutio=
