First make sure you Addressbook APPLICATION is in your dock... Then open it, and find the VIEW selections and set it to show all 3 panes. In the middle pane, you will see the plus sign at the bottom, and you can enter new addresses like that. Pretty simple. But many don't know the Address book is on the dock or it has fallen off and they don't know where to find it.
