KMail had access to the addressbook from some version of the KDE2 cycle.
KAddressBook, KMail (and other applications, e.g. Kopete) basically read the 
same files.

Could be a problem with the Nepomuk setup.
It might not be running or it might not have told about the contacts.

Unfortunately the delay of KMail's port to Akonadi has left the addressbook 
integration in a kind of intermediate state due to it already using the new 
access stack :(

Just for future occasions:

kioclient copy ftp://someserver/somefile /some/local/dir

Might depend on the way your access FTP. If you have an ftp:// URL there won't 
be any problem no matter of character, because they needs to be encoded
