Nothing ready-made. http://gnufoo.org/contacts/ provides the  
programme contacts. Invoking tex with --shell-escape a TeX file can  
invoke from a \write18{} statement an external programme, some shell  
or perl script, that retrieves with contacs information and formats  
it in a way that it can be included into the TeX source.

allows to export the contents in AddressBook to a file with Comma  
Separated Values. Again, a script could filter some date from this  

Could be the MailScripts here can be useful: http://homepage.mac.com/

There's something the technicians need to learn from the artists. If  
it isn't aesthetically pleasing, it's probably wrong.
