In the top-right corner of the dialogue for selecting the recipients there 
should be a drop-down.  This is a FILTER selection.  If it is on "Recent 
Addresses" then you'll only see recently added contacts (surprising eh? ;).  
Change it to the "All" filter (ie, no filter) and you should see everyone, 
including address lists, in your address book.
