I tried a CardDav server and I was able to reproduce the problem (no
completion of addresses). Unfortunately the problem is that Apple Mail
uses a private API. The following from stackoverflow includes a quote
from an Apple engineer on this subject:
I have looked at the private API and after some experimentation I can
make it work for both completion and for the “Address Panel”. Now I
just need to decide whether I want MailMate to become an application
which uses private APIs... I'll probably include the “feature” for
now, but be aware that this is going to be an unsupported feature, that
is, it may be removed again.
I have not tested it, but it should work for any kind of account in the
Address Book (CardDav, Exchange, and LDAP).
