It just works to complete the names with bbdb-complete-name.
Here is the code I use:

(defun my-mail-tab ()
  "Call bbdb-complete-name, if cursor in  Header fields
of the message, otherwise normal? \"TAB\" behaviour."
  (let ((my-complete nil)
(case-fold-search t))
      (if (search-forward (concat "\n" mail-header-separator
  "\n") nil t)
  (setq my-complete t)))
    (if my-complete
(add-hook 'mail-setup-hook
  '(lambda ()
     (define-key mail-mode-map "\t" 'my-mail-tab)))

I didn't use 'bbdb-define-all-aliases' before; I just can display the
description of the function, so I inserted the alias by hand to the
addresses. Maybe, that's the reason!?

It was just a try.
