      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Kmail using KAddressBook

Recommended Posts

Guest campalm

Hi All,


Mandriva Linux release 2010.2, Kernel

Kmail 1.13.5

KDE 4.4.5

KAddressBook 4.4.9


Normally, in a received email when I right click on the sender's address and select "Add to Address Book", a popup box asks me to select an address book from a list.


If I leave Kmail open for a few days (currently open for 2.5 days), the list is empty, and I can't add emails to my address book in this way.


I can manually add contacts via "Tools -> Address Book-> Add Contact".


Restarting Kmail fixes the issue, but after a couple more days, again I can no longer add to the address book via right click.


Auto complete of addresses is always working when creating an email.


Any help would be appreciated.

I've not seen this, but I think the Akonadi service starts when needed. It may be shutting down and therefore you have no access to your address book.


Run Tools>Akonaditray and see if it is running. If not select start and then try and access the address book.


If nothing else this will be a good place to start trouble shooting.
