Apple Mail is an email client developed by Apple Inc. that users can use to send and receive emails. This application is pre-installed on every Mac, iPhone, and other Apple devices. On top of it, Apple mail is free to use by anyone who owns an Apple device. Like any other email client, Apple mail also has a feature of adding contacts or recipient addresses in the contacts.
The benefit of adding these recipients is that you do not need to enter their name every time you want to send an email. Even typing the initials of their email address will show you the complete address in the drop-down menu. You can select it and go further to send an email.
Address Book, where all the email addresses or contacts are stored, work with Mail as well as the iCal calendar app. You can directly add an email address into the Address Book or use Mail to copy the email address from an incoming email directly into the Contacts or the Address Book.
