Yes, in the same column but not in the in-box.

  So, when I have the 'send' window open to write an email. there is no icon

So why don't you add your addresses to the address book (or Contacts page).
It is rather confusing to have references both to Contacts as well as
Address Book - especially when the screen states "Select your Contacts from
the Address Book".  I regard them as the same thing.  To add addresses right
click in the "Select contacts from address book" field and the resultant
menu will let you add or paste addresses.

However, there is no 'address book'. In order for me to access the

The names in the "Contacts" list should be the same as the names in the
address book.  Once you have put your addresses into the address book as
suggested, your troubles should be over.

Good Luck,
