If so this may be the solution you require….
1. Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support/Address Book
2. Delete this file: AddressBook-V22.abcddb
3. Then open the MetaData subfolder
4. Search inside MetaData for the term “smart”
I then deleted any smart group that I knew contained a negative statement. The group I deleted was “No Group” as its looking for cards that have no group. Once you are done with this Apple Mail & AddressBook should work perfectly. My recommendation is NOT to add the smartgroup back in, until there is a fix.
