> Did you try with a Google address book ?

no indeed as I don't have it.
I will try to create a google account for testing it
Comment 4 Philippe ROUBACH 2021-05-12 10:06:31 UTC
I made some experiments.

i type the beginning of the first name of a contact "Lauri"

a recent contact is displayed

i delete the "i"

a recent contact is displayed
a contact from my address book is displayed

but i have 3 contacts with a first name beginning with "Laur". 2 contacts are not displayed !
Comment 5 Philippe ROUBACH 2021-05-12 10:26:30 UTC
For some contact no way to get anything from "recent" or "mes contacts" my Google address book by typing his full name.

For example the contact "Joachim DA COSTA" in my Google address book.

I must type the beginning of the mail address "da" to get a recent address which is his address.

More strange : 
- If I type "joachim" in the search file of kaddressbook then I get nothing.
- If i type "joa" i get the card !

In my Google address book I get 300 contacts. Perthaps it is too many for akonadi.

This happens to me too since the last upgrade of kmail: kmail2 5.21.0 (22.08.0)

I don't have Google contacts, only local contacts (kaddressbook).

I only ever get autocompletion from recent addresses, never from kaddressbook.

Also, I guess becouse of this, mails from my contacts which should be displayed as HTML are displayed as text only.

PS: Sorry for resurrecting an old issue, somehow I thought this was more recent before I commented.
