Here’s how to get rid of the clutter in Mail, Address Book, and Entourage
by Joe Kissell, Macworld.com
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at my address book, noticed someone’s name, and been unable to figure out who the person was or where I’d gotten their information. Maybe someone handed me a business card at a party or trade show years ago and I stuck their info in my address book, but in any case, if I no longer recall the person, it’s unlikely that their info needs to be in my address book. Similarly, colleagues from companies I worked for a decade ago (and whom I haven’t been in touch with since) and other people who have dropped off my radar for one reason or another should probably not be in this list. You could manually scan your contact list and delete names you don’t recognize, but there are also ways to automate the process.
