Well it's only a few days since I discovered where this option had been moved 
to.  At that point I re-wrote the whole of KAddressBook and Akonadi - 
splitting off where it helped for clarity, and linking as necessary.  Take 
another look at KAddressBook.  I think the bit about the Default is what you 
are missing.

They are in kmailrc.

Once we can get you working that shouldn't be hard.  Right-click in the header 
section of a Compose window and you can see Edit Recent Addresses.  You'll be 
able to copy and paste them easily enough.  Actually, I think the easiest way 
would be to paste them into a fake email To: field, then let KMail add them to 
your addressbook.  Still, there are probably several ways to do it - I'm sure 
you'll find one that works best for you.

That I don't know, sorry.
