After a long time not getting to it, I updated to 3 (3.2) a while ago,
and I had to change a bit of config, but then it's been great.  I use it
with gnus.

I do not let bbdb auto-notice/insert.  I type : to create an entry.

My config, which is sort of a recipe for which variables to read the
docs for:

      (require 'bbdb-loaddefs)
      ; Hook BBDB into gnus/message.
      (bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message)
      ; By default, display records when viewing mail.  Note that
      ; bbdb-update-records-p is search, the default.
      (bbdb-mua-auto-update-init 'gnus 'message)
      ; I think I want as small as fits, but for now just say a low
      ; number of lines or small.
      (setq bbdb-pop-up-window-size .2)
      ; Because I display automatically, any use of : or ; will be to
      ; force an entry.  But use query in case I type it my mistake,
      ; and don't query if I ^U to really mean it.
      (setq bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p '(query . create))

      (setq bbdb-canonicalize-redundant-mails t)
      (setq bbdb-new-mails-primary nil)
      (setq bbdb-completion-list '(fl-name mail))
