Building on that, tho, what about this...

1) Copy it out of the kaddressbook list, into a text editor (kwrite or 

2) In the text editor, use global search and replace to replace all the 

3) Copy the fixed list out of the text editor, into kmail.

Certainly it's a hassle, but it might do as a work-around until you 
switch to 4.7 or whatever.

(FWIW, I finished the akregator conversion last nite, then unmerged it 
and the rest of kdepim, set the (gentoo) USE=-semantic-desktop that I 
couldn't before because kdepim required it, unmerged and rebuild several 
other packages including kmail, gwenview, dolphin, etc, without the 
semantic-desktop stuff, changed to USE=-redland, -raptor, and -virtuoso 
and unmerged them, nempmuk, akonadi-server, etc.  That left me with 
soprano due to koffice-libs, but soprano's just a stub now without a 
backend.  And FWIW, the system starts up a lot faster, now, and runs 
without the hassles of all the warnings, etc, as well.  So I don't have 
anything personal in that game any more, now.  Good luck!  =:^)
