    If you want an address book to sync between all of your devices, then get away from having the address book “on your Mac” and put it in the cloud.
    You can do this with MobileMe, Google, Yahoo, Exchange servers and a variety of others that use CardDAV or LDAP standards.
    In Address Book on your Mac go to Preferences, then Accounts. You can add one of those services as an account. Then you are storing the master list of contacts on that server, and viewing it locally on your Mac. Update your Mac and the server is updated too. Then just use those same accounts on your iPhone, or just about any device that supports that same server.

    Suddenly I hav lost my mail. I cannot open it on my Macbook. I have gone to the preferences, made certain it is default. I click on th icon and it will not open. Also, if it makes any difference, I have lost Google Chrome. Can you help please?

      It sounds like some major issues. If a restart doesn’t help, I would try re-installing OS X (not a clean install, just OS X over OS X so everything else stays the same).
      If you are not performing backups, do it NOW. You may be on the verge of losing everything if this is a hard drive issue.
      Take your Mac to the Genius Bar if you can and get first-hand help.
