Found the preference and that fixed it (the above part).

After both, either after a restore or after importing a .cvf (?) file of
your address book.  I can send a new email, click on "to" button, and
see them doubled when you go to choose who to send the email too.  BUT,
if you look in the address book itself (via view/window/contacts), there
is just one entry.  So in other words, it's on doubled when you go to
send an email and want to add someone from your address book.

Understand what I am referring to?
