Hi Daniel,

Have you downloaded the CardBook add-on?

CardBook Preferences enable a lot of customization.

If you want more information, read TL;DR below...


The developer has been:
* rapidly implementing many suggestions
* incorporating translations
* merging code (if you send it to him)

The CardBook add-on works with:
* Mail Merge add-on
* Lightning add-on

CardBook add-on (available for Windows, MacOS, Linux, etc) so that all
contact information is in one place?


Could anybody comment on the difference between CardBook and the
built-in Thunderbird Address Book?

I've heard that the built-in address book is not being maintained[1], it
still only supports 2 email addresses per contact, 
CardBook support unlimited email address per contact...
but will CardBook be
the successor?  
The CardBook (Contacts) add-on is the cousin to Lightning (Calendar/Tasks) add-on.

Does it enhance the built-in address book, or is it
completely separate?
Either... Depends on CardBook Preferences --> General Tab --> Unique source of contacts
