Creating Groups in the Address Book    
You can create groups in Address Book to help organize your contacts. Another neat feature of groups is that they can be used for easily sending out emails to a specified group in the Mail program. This makes things very easy if you are going to send emails to certain groups on a regular basis. So to create a group, go to the bottom of the group column to and click on the plus sign. A new group shows up and is ready for you to type in a name. Name it what you'd like. Now you can click and drag contacts from the All folder into the new groups. Notice that by doing this we don’t remove a contact from the All folder it simply is added to the new group. You can also add one contact to multiple groups. You can also add a new contact directly in a group. So let’s say I want to add a new contact to my work group. I simply click on the work group and click the plus sign in the name column. Fill out the information and the new person is added. Notice that the new contact will also be added to your All folder.
