Hi Nikolaus,

This is part of my set-up. 

    (setq bbdb-file "~/.emacs.d/.bbdb")
    (bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message 'anniv)
    (setq bbdb-complete-mail-allow-cycling t)
    ;; control pop-up and it's size
    (setq bbdb-mua-pop-up t)
    (setq bbdb-mua-pop-up-window-size 0.1)
    (setq bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p '(query . create))
    (setq bbdb-message-all-addresses t)
    (add-hook 'message-setup-hook 'bbdb-mail-aliases)

This works as you want it to work I think.

Good luck!
