Roundcube Recipient To Contact Plugin


Recipient To Contact is a plugin to quickly add new contacts to address books. When sending an email to recipients that aren't in the address book, this plugin displays a form to quickly save these contacts. Inspired by Automatic Addressbook plugin.


  • Simple jQuery UI based interface.
  • Parses 'To:', 'Cc:' and 'Bcc:' and automatically fills name and email address fields.
  • Configurable: which address books to use for searching; default behavior; etc.
  • Can be activated/deactivated through User Preferences section.
  • Advanced error handling.

The default config file is plugins/recipient_to_contact/ Rename this to plugins/recipient_to_contact/ and edit it there.

Configuration options:


A list of address book IDs, which would be used for searching existing contacts. For example, if it contains array('sql', 'global', 'ldap') the plugin will look for existing contacts only in these address books. The default (an empty array) means the plugin will use address books specified in the autocomplete_addressbooks option in the Roundcube configuration file.
