This item is deprecated and should no longer be used. You can use CNContainerMBS class instead.
The ABAccount functions are not documented by Apple, but work well on OS X version 10.8 to 10.10.
They may work in newer versions if Apple does not change them. They may work in past OS X versions if Apple hat the same features there, too.
If the functions are not available in a OS X version, you will see NSExceptionMBS being raised.
This is an abstract class. You can't create an instance, but you can get one from various plugin functions.
