The adressbooks which is used in kmail is not set in kmail/kadressbook/akonadi like expected but in "personal Information" in systemsettings. There you can set which contact-ressources are used generally and also in kmail for adress completion. There you can set single adress books or you can add the akonadi-ressource which adds all adressbooks registered in akonadi.

Maybe your adressbook is not registered there? I created a few other adressbooks in kadressbook, which have not been shown in kmail. I changed the ressource in "personal information" to akonadi-ressource and now, all adresses from all the adressbooks are shown in kmail

Can you help with this problem?
