This contact is no longer in your local contacts-Smartr/Gmail Error

Have you seen this appear, even when you know the contact is someone you know?

"This contact is no longer in your local contacts"

Thanks to Angel Steger via Smartr/Xobni, here is the explanation.

Angel Steger

If you're reading this, you've likely gotten a message in your Gmail sidebar that said "This contact is no longer in your local contacts".

Here's what that means:

  •  This is because our search is currently handled in the sidebar. The current limit is your top-ranked 5-10k contacts. However, we are currently working on making it possible to search ALL of your contacts from the Gmail sidebar. Your total Smartr address book is larger than the number of contacts that we can store for you locally.
  • Because of the limit, certain actions can downgrade your contact below what we can locally store. 
    These include hiding a contact. Another example would be if you were viewing your 10,000th contact, and Xobni indexed some new data that changed that contact's rank to 10,001. This would bump that contact out of your top cached contacts. 
  • Want to see that contact again? 
    If you open a message from them in Gmail, we'll dig out that contact again.
ThaWhile all of this sounds fine-my contacts are well within their number - about 8,000 or right in the middle. Do I somehow have "oversized" contacts?

I hope passing on this info is helpful to some other AR people. I was surprised to read the error message myself.
