Re: [Evolution] How to get new addresses automatically added to "contacts"

Automatically create entries in the address book when responding to
messages. Guess this is what you are looking for.


It seemed indeed by your description that this was what I was looking
for. But today when I went to the Automatic Contacts Tab, I found that
it was already checked! That is, the option was already enabled. --But I
do not find that it works. For example, I have been writing a particular
person, and every time I begin to type his e-mail address in the "To"
window, I hope that Evo will cue me by completing the e-mail address so
I don't have to type it all. But it never does so. Then last evening I
manually added his address in my Contact List, and then next time when I
went to type his e-mail address in the "To" window of a mail, Evo did
cue me by completing the address for me. 

So when the Automatic Contacts Tab is already enabled, then why is it
that I still have to manually enter people's e-mail addresses into the
Contact List when I have already sent letters to them in the past?

One question: is it that the Automatic Contacts will only add a new
address if you are clicking on "reply" to THEIR letter? Or if you write
an e-mail to someone to whom you haven't written before, and you type
their address into the "To" window of a mail, then in that case would
Evo add that address into Contacts? Or does it only happen when you
actually click on "reply" to someone's letter?

I would hope that it is not restricted to when you click "reply". If you
type a new e-mail address into the "To" window of a mail, then the same
auto entry ought to occur in Contacts as if you had clicked on "reply".

When I used to use Thunderbird, any new address my e-mail software came
in contact with would automatically be added into its address book. But
this is not happening with Evolution. Is there some option or setting
which one can enable, so that new addresses will automatically add into
the contact list and I won't have to do it manually all the time?
