View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution: AutoComplete from sent addresses

January 3rd, 2009, 05:40 AM
Because of these forum policies of closing old threads for no logical reason (and not allowing us to debate about it (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1022842)), I have copied and pasted an old thread you can see here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=378940&highlight=evolution+autocomplete). Since I just stumbled upon this issue with Evolution, I want to revive the debate about it, so here's the original message:

Hi guys !

evolution is auto-completing address from address book, but is there a way to make it autocomplete from sent addresses too like in microsoft outlook ?

It's not only MS Outlook that does this, but Thunderbird (and probably others) too. I was about to migrate from TB because it's just buggy, its search functions have been broken for years and I have no more hopes its many issues will ever be addressed. However, the sudden discovery that Evolution won't remember addresses I have sent e-mail to before has shocked me and I just want to make sure this is just like that.

I, too, really wish Evolution had this ability. It's a little amazing to me that it doesn't.
