Hmm. KDE 3.5 included KMail 1.9.

When you say "Address Book" do you mean "Address Book Browser - 
KAddressBook" (it can be started via the Tools menu in KMail)?

If you are using KAddressBook then please check whether 
the "Distribution Lists" pane is shown. If it is not shown, then you 
can make it visible via the View menu.

If this doesn't help then you might want to make a screenshot to explain 
the problem. Please note that the screenshot should not be too large 
because this mailing list does not allow large attachments (> 40 KB). 
Reducing the number of colors in the screenshot to 16 colors (without 
dithering) and saving the screenshot as PNG should help reducing the 
size of the screenshot.
