Have I missed something? Why can't you just select the address in 
question and click Edit?

I think there's a high level bug ('feature') that causes MPro to save 
the new address as well as the old one instead of replacing it, so you 
then have to delete the old entry.

If your address book is getting too big to handle I would recommend 
using folders to group the entries into suitable categories.

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
