I have a question about address books. As I work through the wealth of
documentation about emacs/gnus, I find two places mentioned where
addresses can be kept, (I expect there are more).

In ~/.emacs or ~/.gnus in the form;

        (define-mail-alias "kkk" "")

or in ~/.mailrc in the form

        alias keith

Now, assuming I have in ~/.emacs, the following line;

        (add-hook 'mail-mode-hook 'mail-abbrevs-setup)

1: Why do addresses from the ~/.mailrc expand and the ones in ~/.emacs

2: Which is the best method for keeping addresses, and why?  Is there
   a better way
