The whole organisation of MPro, or rather of !NewsDir, where address
books live, is a bit of a pig's ear. I've several times asked if
somebody who understands !NewsDir would write about how it works for
Archive. Answer came there none.
There is a sledgehammer was of getting at addresses, though. Here I
have address books in !Boot.Resources.!NewsDir.Messenger and also in
!Boot.Resources.!NewsDir.UserHome.<my user name>. These can be
searched with your favourite text editor, or can be interrogated with
such as !TextSeek.
