Default DM 4.6 - Difference between "Address Book" and "Address Book - All"

Please Login to Remove!

Does anybody know what the difference is? They are both listed as databases on the BB device itself (to see, go to Backup/Restore -> Advanced).

I've seen Desktop Manager report different numbers in each database before, but the number of contacts visible on the blackberry always matches the number in "Address Book" even though "Address Book - all" reports a different (higher) number sometimes.

If you have more than one email you might have more than one address database. One for each email system.
