I opened my Mail program to send some emails to a group and I discovered that my address has been erased and replaced by my wife's.

It has been doing weird things lately which defy description including getting rid of names, adding names to groups with disastrous results. etc.

I have formatted my wife's ipod many times and each time it brings back her address list in the contacts list

I notice that there is a group added to the list which is ipod group. It has her address book on it.

How can I stop this from happening to my address book? I use her ipod and will be for the foreseeable future.

I assume I can get my address book list from Time Machine.

I though that icloud was the cause so I dumped it awhile ago.
Cheers

It's getting bizarre. I went to Time Machine and tried restoring and it added ny old names to the new ones which is OK because I can just delete the additional ones but it did not restore the groups I had before. I tried it three or four times going back to older dates and the same thing.

What am I missing?
