Thank you Martin, see my comments in the text below.

My system is being used daily for work, however it is a stock standard system 
that I installed somewhere in 2009 and simply upgraded as and when new version 
of Kubuntu became available.  I never tweaked it

Some time last year I upgraded and it all turned into a nightmare.  I lost my 
emails and kontact is more problem than help.  It is a bit late now, but I 
wish I had tried gnome with evolution first.  In any event everything is stock-
standard as KDE or Kubuntu set it up.

Default Address Book, type file and set as standard
akonadi-resource, type akonadi

Why would that work?  How should I do that?  Through Systems-Settings?

If you mean to ask is nemopuk enabled? The answer is yes.  If you are asking 
something else, I do not know where to look to see if the "feeder" is active.

Isn't that a bit extreme?

See above, I don't know what else nemopuk is linked to.  I am not aware that 
it does anything else on my system.

If I create a new user what about my emails and contact list?  What about my 
data in the home directory of the current user?  What about my accounting data 
and the data and configurations stored by all my other software?
