Whenever i compose a message and type in a name/email, etc in the to-field, the auto-completion does not pop up. Only if I type something, then delete the text again and start typing again, the auto-completion pops up.
This bug was introduces in the KF5 version (I am also quite sure i have not observed it in 18.08., but it is definitely different in the KDE4 version)-
I confirm it (I saw it from some weeks/months)
I couldn't success to understand why it doesn't work.
I continue to investigate
I confirm it too. I'm on ArchLinux.
Confirmed from me as well. Note that the "Reply To" field works fine apparently.
in qt5.6 it works fine now.
i cannot confirm that qt 5.6 fixes the bug. I have just upgraded qt on my gentoo box an the bug still appears.
- qt 5.6.0
- plasma 5.6.2
- kde-frameworks 5.21
- kdepim 5.12.3
checked and verified, that the bug still exists in 16.04.0
Also happens for me in Applications 16.04.0 / Qt 5.5.1. The interesting bit: No matter how often I retry to type in the name, via select+overwrite, it does not work. If I use backspace to remove all but the first character, then type again, it does not work. Only if I use backspace to get back to 'position 0' does it then spawn the auto-completion popup as I begin to type again.
Upgraded to Qt-5.6.1 and the issue is still present. I made another observation though:
- Indeed "To:" field works fine
- "CC:" does show same behaviour as described in my above comment
- However "CC:" works fine if _at first_ you were using "To:", which is often not happening when you reply to someone and put people into CC.

I am also on qt 5.6.1, but i am still facing the problem, regardless of the field type (to, cc). However, i have also notices some very rare (looks random to me) cases, where the completion did work.
Good news from my system at least - since upgrading to 16.07.80 I could not see the problem anymore.

woohoo. same here, 16.07.80 fixed it for me..
@kdepim-team: did you change anything intentionally or are we hit by luck that some "race condition" does not occur anymore?
