I would suggest, in case you didn't do it this way, to close claws-mail and
then copy over the previous ~/.claws-mail/addrbook files to the new
location, then re-open claws mail to see if the addresses are in there.

I think if you copy them over while claws is running, it doesn't 'refresh'
even though it has new information to work with.
