Where does KMail get its address-completions from?
Is it possible to edit or remove these?
Many of the completions offered to me are bizarre inventions,
while e-mail addresses I have used hundreds of times are ignored.
autocompletion comes from several sources:
* configured addressbooks
* Recent addresses - i.e. addresses you've sent emails to recently
* Indexed contacts - contacts indexed from all emails
In KMail -> Settings -> Configure KMail -> Composer -> General you can choose
which addresbooks to autocomplete from in "Configure Completion ...", and you
can turn off autocompletion from the indexed contacts by unchecking "Use Baloo
search for autocompletion".
The "bizarre" addresses usually come from the Baloo index, I've noticed
that we fail to parse some addresses correctly when indexing them leading to
all kinds of funny (or broken) suggestions in composer. Unfortunatelly there
is no way to modify this index - you can only turn it off.
The recent addresses can be managed in the "Configure Completion" dialog.
