You're probably right.

Kaddress book doesn't seem to have much in the way of configuring.  I had 
already set up .local- - -  contacts with  .vcf files...   and when I use 
'Select'  on the 'TO' line in kmail2, I get the addresses and that part works.  
Just to auto-fill other than recent addresses.

What is the format of the addresses in your contact directory?

I did not have a 'Personal Contacts' resource and I added one and pointed it 
to the 'contacts' directory...  and it is now ready.   Kamil2  sees that 
directory and that's where I can 'select' addresses, but still no fill in.

So I'm wondering if my files are in the wrong format since they are .vcf files 
in the contact directory.
