"this is not happening anymore."

What is not happening anymore? autocomplete of their addresses?

Yes. And the emails go i think but do not get returned as undelivered for whatever reason.

If you don't type (or AutoComplete) an e-mail address or addresses exactly as it/they should be, then they will be bounced back within seconds.

"...then they will be bounced back within seconds."

Unless what you type is a wrong, but valid format address.

Im not getting anything back but my friends are not getting the e mails.

You can check what address was used in your Sent folder

How do you auto complete please?

I have a similar problem with Outlook Express, I have two e-mail addresses. The one is OK but the other goes to the Outbox > Sent box > and that's it- nobody receives them, and no error messages! I have a network of 3 PC's and have sent e-mails using this particular address and they do not appear on any of them.

I use NTL (Virgin) so I phoned them today, they said there was a problem with a particular Server which will not be repaired until 6th April !

I mention this because it may be relevant to this topic.

To set up Outlook Express to automatically check names as you type them in, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then select the Send tab. Select Automatically complete e-mail addresses when composing.

.....and of course they have to be listed in your Contacts
