Address Panel in iCal empty but typing in characters yields search results

I upgraded our 10.5 iCal Server to a Snow Leopard server about 6 weeks ago. At that time I also began upgrading users to 10.6 from 10.5. The address panel of iCal functioned properly with 10.5 clients before and after the server upgrade. However the 10.6 clients see nothing in the Address Panel of iCal until they begin entering a name, email address, etc.
If I use the iCal Server utility on my machine I can see resources and conference rooms (locations) that have been setup so I know the information is there and being served. Is this just the operation of 10.6 clients? I would imagine the address panel would populate automatically when opened rather than necessitating the entering of data to perform a lookup.
I feel like I am missing a switch or something simple. Anyone have any ideas?
Other than that issue it all works fine (iCal server with 50+ users scheduling).
Thanks folks.

Try deleting the index db: AddressBook-v22.abcddb. It is in your Library/Application Support/AddressBook/ folder.

    Can anybody help please How do I Format address panel in iCal to show Department from the address book. At the moment it is showing 'Job Title' even though that has been removed in Address Book.

    I have a similar problem. I actually spoke with a Paypal customer Representative a few months back who informed me that they had deleted all of my previous *Hidden* Address but when I just purchased an item today on a online merchant's site that I had never been to before and checked out using their Paypal option, I noticed that my default shipping address was in fact my old address and when I went to change the address to my current address, I noticed all of the old addresses I ever used were still there. I've just spoken with 2 separate paypal representatives who confirmed on their end that all of the old address have been deleted and the only one they have on file is my current address. Can anyone provide me an explanation as to why the old hidden address can still be showing up when I check out on merchant's sites using paypal even after they've seemingly been deleted? The last Representative suggested clearing out my browser's cache, but I don't believe that will resolve my issue. Thank you in advance.

  • Address book and iCal empty

    After rebuilding my Outlook 2011 database all the entries in iCal and Address Book were deleted. I restored the calendars from my Time Machine backup but after Outlook 2011 synced again (duplicating all the entries in Outlook) all my calendars again disappeared from iCal and all my contacts disappeared from Address Book. Help!

    After thinking this through, I turned off the iCloud option on the iPhone and in iTunes on my iMac, resynced and all is now well.

  • Address Panel in Mail.app empty but Address Book app full

    I recently updated to Mountain Lion. I have a mid-2011 iMac i7. I can't honestly say that it stopped working with the advent of Mountain Lion but it is the most recent change.
    When I type a name in the Mail.app new email "To" field it will not read my contacts. The processing lined circle spins over on the right but never does anything. I looked in my contacts app and everything is fine. If I go into the mail.app and go to window->address panel it is empty. I am not using iCloud for contacts on any of my devices.
    I tried searching a contact name from spotlight and it shows up under contacts... but hey, like i said, all my contacts are available in the contacts app.

    Thunderbird does not have this problem, nor does Postbox. Both are now listed under security settings as having address book access. Mail.app is not listed as having access and there's not an option to add it.

    addendum 1/19/11 - The fact that functionality is lost as the version increases and is typical of Apple software. I use it in an enterprise environment. How is one to invite multiple contacts to a meeting using Address Panel when you can only do one lookup at a time? Does anyone have this working in iCal 4 as it worked with iCal 3 where all contacts/resources/locations are listed without prodding for data?

  • How do I restore my settings in Address Book, iPhoto, iCal etc?

    Hi,
    I've just reinstalled Leopard on my MacBook and backed up using Time Machine to my external Lacie HD before I did this.
    I want to restore my settings in Address Book, iPhoto, iCal etc. I have tried using Migration Assistant to restore my settings but it stopped saying "1 minute left" and after 24 hours was still saying the same thing.
    I open up Address Book, iPhoto, iCal etc. but my original address details, photos etc. aren't there. Am I supposed to use Migration Assistant to restore Applications?
    Is there a way around this?
    Thanks in advance,
    Phil

    i forgot to mention that you should also try running the "repair permissions" from "disk utility" in the applications/utility directory whenever you copy back directories or files that you didn't directly create but that may have been created by a program. that is because the programs that create the directories/files in the first place sometimes will give the files a different set of permission that what the files will get when you copy them. so after you copy files back from another locations some files may not end up with the correct permissions when copied with the finder.

  • Address Panel

    I have a question about the address panel in iCal. I believe it is supposed to take contacts from your address book and put them in the address panel within iCal, however whenever I open the address panel, it is completely blank and there is no where I see to add anything.
    What's up with this? I'm trying to figure out how to send calendar invitations to people and I believe that could be the culprit. Even if it's not, I still would like to know what the heck it does or is supposed to do.
    Thanks!
    BTW, I am using MobileMe to sync my contacts. Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. Thanks in advance for the help!!

    Eric,
    If you go into iCal, then Window > Address Panel or CommandOptionA brings it up.
    There is always something I miss, or never noticed.
    Maybe it's supposed to be blank. EIther way, I have no idea what the point of it is. Is yours blank?
    No, mine displays my Address Book entries.
    It should not be blank. When I drag one of the entries to iCal it creates an event named "Meeting with..." (Name of contact).
    ...I think that might be the reason I can't invite attendees.
    Perhaps refreshing the iCal plist file may return the function. You will find the com.apple.iCal.plist file in your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences Folder. Quit iCal, drag the com.apple.iCal.plist file to your Desktop, log out/in or restart.
    And yes, to upgrade the new MobileMe you go into the calendar section on MobileMe =).
    I am waiting to upgrade when IOS 4.2 is released for the iPad.
    ;~)

  • ICal and CalDAV issues: Address Panel - Open Directory Lookup? & others.

    An overview of my setup:
    I'm using Google Calendar through CalDAV (set up with Calaboration), and have no problems synchronizing events. These are dealing with attendees.
    Several parts to this one, so to start:
    1) It appears that, likely with any CalDAV calendar, my Address Panel becomes an "Open Directory Lookup" instead of searching my trusty Address Book contacts, which I would prefer. I also cannot type in names/email addresses and have them auto-complete, which I assume is now searching the empty Open Directory.
    Is there a way I can force this to still use my Address Book? Or does anyone know a way to hook my Google contacts (in Gmail) into a directory search that will come up in the new panel?
    2) When people add me as a "guest" in Google Calendar (== attendee in iCal), I see it in my calendar on iCal. I see myself in the list, with my name and email address... but I cannot RSVP. Google recommends that I add my Gmail account hooked to my Calendar to my "me" card in Address Book, which I have done, but it still does not recognize, well, Me.
    I'm stumped. Is there something I'm missing? Something else I need to do in iCal?

    Thanks for the answer.
    I guess because I was deleting the 'local' calendar with some of my test accounts and not others I would sometimes get the local Address Book panel by default and sometimes the Open Directory panel.
    I agree it's pretty confusing.

  • Group name shows in the Address Panel, but when I click on it the addresses do not appear. It only happens with this group.

    I send emails to a list that is divided into four groups.
    Recently the fourth group has stopped working.
    It has seventy addresses in it.
    The others have between 70-100 and work fine.
    When I type the name of the other groups into the address panel and click on it the addresses all appear.
    When I do this with the fourth group only the name appears and not the addresses, so it does not send.
    I now have to put each address into the panel individually which is time-consuming and annoying.
    Please help if possible. Thanks.

  • Contacts not appearing in the Mail address panel

    If I am in Mail on my MacBook the mail program knows nothing about any addresses in my contact list.
    The Address Panel and Previous Contacts lists are empty.
    If I open my contacts list - I see all my contacts properly.
    They also sync properly between my phone and macbook.  I can add a contact to my pone and a second or two later it appears on my MB; and I can add a contact to my MB and seconds later it appears on my phone.
    Here is when I believe the problem started.
    I wanted all my mail and contacts to be in my 'documents' folder so I could sync that folder, and only that folder, between multiple places and machines and also backup everything in one fell swoop.
    a) I moved the mail and the application support/addressbook folders from my library to my docs folder.
    b) In the terminal created hard links in the original places pointing to the new.  I was careful to make hard links not soft.
    From the finder and from the terminal the links are all working fine works fine.  And as I mentioned the sync function to my phone finds the moved files and works great.  Mail work fine. I can create new accounts etc so mail preferences work fine. I also did this with my messages and dropbox and they are working fine.
    If I  reveal   ' ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/MailRecents-v4.abcdmr'
    It is in         '  /Users/MyUserFolder/Documents/$ AddressBook'
    If I  reveal   ' ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail'
    It is in         ' /Users/MyUserFolder/Library/Containers'
    So everything looks good.  But obviously it isn't.  I am missing moving a file somewhere, or possibly a pref file needs edited.
    Gosh, I sure hope Apple didn't hardcode a lowlevel address into the mail program somehow.  That would have been shortsighted and against unix principles that want everything to be accessible through the file system - but it wouldn't be the 1st time they changed something inside unix.
    I found the discussion, Re: Why can't Mail access email addresses from Contacts? and looked at that.
    I did not see anything that looked like it would help me since it seemed he could see the contacts in his address panel it just wouldn't auto search them. I thought about trying the two things Linc Davis mentioned but he cautioned against changing any of the contents of the sandbox.  The last time I was deep into the OS was before it had a sandbox so I am not familiar with it and am not sure what would or would not affect the sandbox; so I hesitate to try until I understand that.
    I am running 10.8.2 build 12C60 and Mail 6.2 (1499)  on a MB Pro 15" Early'08  2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    So they is something about Mary Mail.  Anyone have any ideas for me?
    Could Mail have a relative address or very low level address to the addressbook built into it?

    More Info:
    If I  reveal   ' ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/MailRecents-v4.abcdmr'
    It is in         '  /Users/MyUserFolder/Documents/$ AddressBook'
    If I  reveal   ' ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail'
    It is in         ' /Users/MyUserFolder/Library/Containers'

  • I have lost all my address book and iCal content on my MacBook Pro. How do I restore from my iPhone?

    I have lost all my address book and iCal content on my MacBook Pro. How do I restore from my iPhone? I tried synchronising my iPhone to the MacPro but then lost all the content on the iPhone. I managed to get it back using the restore. This means the only content I have for Address Book and iCal sits on my iPhone!

    Put one unique entry in both iCal & Address Book on your Mac. These entries can be fake, that doesn't matter, just make sure Address Book & iCal are not empty. Then when you select to sync contacts & calendars on the Info pane in iTunes, you'll get a merge or replace prompt. Select merge.

  • Can I sync Address Book and iCal to put contact info into iCal?

    I use Address Book as a contact/customer list and use iCal to prepare my schedule for work. I usually type in the name of the customer I want to see in iCal. Is there anyway to import or drag names out of Address Book into iCal so the location & contact info will be included? I don't want to invite the customer. I just want to input the info into iCal so I don't have retype a name that is already in my Address Book.
    If I have customer "xxx" in Adress Book and I am planning on visiting this customer tomorrow. Is there anyway for me to transfer/import this info to iCal without physically typing "xxx"? When I look at my appointment I would love to see the contact info for "xxx" in iCal when I click on individual appointments.
    I hope this makes sense.

    Hi,
    You can link to the Address Book entry with a URL. See my script +Link to Address Book+ on this page http://www.nhoj.co.uk/applescripts/ which creates a link from the currently selected person in Address Book. These can then be added to the URL field in iCal or the notes field if you have more than one per event.
    Best wishes

  • Lost ability to add, delete and move email addy's in Address Panel

    Not long ago I downloaded Snow Leopard 10.6.3 from disc and then upgraded to 10.6.8.  Perhaps a coincidence, but now I see I'm no longer able to use Address Panel as I previously had.  Specifically: I recall there had been + and - buttons to add and delete email addresses, but now I don't see these ~ perhaps I'm looking for the wrong thing?  Also, I can't drag and drop an addy from one group to another as I previously had.  I'm using Mail 4.6.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Other than the Snow Leopard download, I've no idea what may have caused this problem.  Or perhaps I simply don't know where to look ~
    Thank you!

    My bad ( : - 0 !  I figured this out:
    It's Address Book ~ not Address Panel ~ that does the trick.
    Thanks!
