Thanks for your answer, but it doesn't help at all.
As you might see in my original mail, I'm referring exactly to the webpage you mention.
And that page at the mentioned paragraph is not useful to me.

I have migrated (or whatever kaddressbook did with my existing addressbook when I ran it
the first time) and usually I can use it (I see the contacts, etc.).

However the above mentioned error dialog appears when I log in - and therefore
my question: What does that message want to tell me and how can I solve it.

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
