Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

I saved some mail recipients in a list. Afterwards some entries are doubled.
Example: The Email
Jack User <user_jack@mydomain.com> was already in the address book. In the recipients list jst the mail address user_jack@mydomain.com was entered. Result: A new entry 
user_jack <user_jack@mydomain.com> was added to the address book

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
See above

Actual Results:  
Mail recipients are doubles up in kadressbook

Expected Results:  
When savin a mail list, the system should check for existing email-adresses in *all* address books and folders, before adding a new adress

OS: Linux (i686) release
Compiler: gcc

Hi Alex, could you explain exactly how you save these contacts, click by click?

I can confirm this bug on 4.8.0. Every time I create a list, seemingly all contacts included in the list are duplicated reliably. This is a "happens all the time" bug. It doesn't matter if the list is created manually in KAddressbook or by saving a set of addressees as a new list in Kmail (as in the step by step). 

It is extremely annoying for somebody who would like to keep a tidy address book, so I'm sure you can imagine I'd be very happy for a fix. I have three instances of many important contacts just because they are on two email lists. I basically cannot maintain an email list if I am unwilling to live with duplicate contacts at the same, because every time I delete them, I will mess up my email lists as old contacts are undistinguishable from the new.

Looks like this is still a problem in KDE: 4.10.00 "release 546"
Comment 7 Benjamin M 2013-02-18 10:09:06 UTC
Seems like it can safely be set to "Confirmed" now?

Comment 9 Martin Tlustos 2014-05-09 09:54:55 UTC
Seems to work now (4.13, Kubuntu 14.04). What do you say? If it works, please close the report as fixed.
Comment 10 Denis Kurz 2016-09-24 20:52:21 UTC
This bug has only been reported for versions before 4.14, which have been unsupported for at least two years now. Can anyone tell if this bug still present?

If noone confirms this bug for a Framework-based version of kaddressbook (version 5.0 or later, as part of KDE Applications 15.08 or later), it gets closed in about three months.
Comment 11 Axel Braun 2016-12-13 07:46:03 UTC
I checked KMail 5.3.2 and could not see the problem anymore.
As I assume that no maintenance is done for 4.14.x version I set this to resolved
