Angry K-9 mail help

I have a Motorola Droid.
The default mail is *Edited**

I read that k-9 is one of the better free mail apps.
I downloaded it and love it, except that I don't have access to my contacts.
I downloaded the app today. (3/30/10) It is the latest version.

The default e-mail had a feature where as you typed the address, it auto filled options for you to select. I don't have that with the K-9 app and there's no address book I can find to access.

I do not know all my contact's e-mail addresses to type out without help.

Anyone have any ideas? Is there a way to correct this?
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. That didn't work.

Like I said I like this one a lot better than the stock one, but I need a contact access.

Help Please??

I had the same problem. I sent an email to the dev, but never got a response.

If you do email the dev and get a response, please let me know what they have to say. I would love to know.

Bump.
Anyone else having this issue?
Is there a way to correct it?
Maybe another free app that does everything k-9 does, but let's you access your contacts?

I haven't seen any other email app as good as K-9.

I'm not sure what the problem is here. I am running K-9 Mail and when I select to create a new email, there is a "To" box. If I start to type someones name, then I get a whole list of suggested email addresses from my contacts.

That's crazy.

When I was running K-9 it wouldn't bring up any of my contacts.

I just gave up.

Maybe I'll try again.

I have no problem at all with the K-9 mail. Email addresses were pulled from the contacts once I start typing on the To: field.

I am also curious about several things with K9 but can't seem to find a general help file.

I do get the contacts list when I begin to enter an email address, but I find that whenever I send mail from my phone, the sent mail shows the message was sent 3 or more times... or it looks like a separate message for every sentence I write!

Also, can anyone tell me what the significance is of the messages with the dark gray background?

Default Autocomplete contacts with K-9

Autofill of contacts does not seem to be supported on the latest version on Android Market (2403). I had the same problem but it is resolved in the latest version 2590.

Here's howto install:

Download the apk file
Copy to memory card
Download and install Apps Installer (free) from the Android Market
Run Apps Installer which will show all apk files on your memory card
Click on K-9 to install
That's it!

I'm just about to download K9 because I need two Microsoft Exchange accounts on my phone but I also need a contacts file and a diary, just as I would get in Outlook. What else should I install to make that happen?

I believe that the dark gray background indicates that the message has not been fully downloaded. You can choose to download the whole message. You can also change the default for how much is downloaded per message.
