Importing Entries into Mailing List

Is there any way to import all the entries in an address book into a 
mailing list without having to start typing the names or addresses on 
each line of the list?

Yes.

Open the global address book (Window | Address Book or CTRL-5). Select 
the specific address book under which you want the mailing list to 
appear, click the "New List" button on the toolbar, and give it a name. 
You don't have to add any addresses at this point.

Once you have a target for your copying, go to the source address book 
and select all (click any entry and do CTRL-A). Drag and drop to the 
mailing list. Although this looks like a move, you can't actually /move/ 
addresses to a mailing list because they have to exist simultaneously in 
the address book proper. Instead, SM will copy them, leaving the 
originals intact in place.

Even if you create the list under one address book and the entries come 
from a different address book, SM will still create copies in the list 
and leave the originals in place (it won't move them). However, in this 
case, it will also create copies of all list entries in the parent 
address book of the list (because entries cannot exist in a list without 
also existing in the address book). So it's probably wisest to create 
the list under the same address book as the entries come from.
