Actually, since you seem to be using Gnus (judging from the headers in
your message), you'd want BBDB info for Gnus, not for mew. This is
pulled from the bbdb manual:

----- Initializing BBDB support for Gnus

To take advantage of the Gnus features of the BBDB, add one of the
following forms to your Emacs configuration file:

For Gnus 3.14 or older:

(add-hook 'gnus-Startup-hook 'bbdb-insinuate-gnus)

For Gnus 3.15 or newer:

(add-hook 'gnus-startup-hook 'bbdb-insinuate-gnus)

bbdb-insinuate-gnus adds bindings for the default keys to Gnus and
configures Gnus to notify the BBDB when new messages are loaded. This
notification is required if the BBDB is to be able to display BBDB
entries for messages displayed in Gnus. 


although I have these lines in my .gnus.el:

(require 'bbdb)
(require 'bbdb-gnus)
(bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message)

(setq gnus-summary-line-format
      "%U%R%4d [%4k](%2t):  %I%(%[%-16,16uB%]%) %s\n")
