For eMail I use Opera - for over 7 years now - so the eMail addresses are  
stored separately.

I'm missing my contact-data stored in KAdressbook: email addresses, postal  
addresses, phone and fax numbers, pictures, Notes and other information.  
The eMail correspondence and therefor the email addresses are  
administrated by Opera in ~/.opera/mail/.

Before update to Kubuntu 11.10 the KAddressbook worked fine inside  
Kontact. I used it every day.
