Outlook Address Bar Autocomplete

  Legslip 14:07 30 Sep 2008

My Outlook autocompletes when I start to type an e-mail address in a new e-mail. However, most of the other office PC's do not do this. Using Outlook 2003. Any ideas why?

Tools, Options, Preferences, email, advanced email, tick 'suggest names...' box

Thanks Oldbeefer. Any idea if it can be done in Outlook 2000.

Not sure, as I, like you, have 2003.

Thanks Beefer. Does anyone know if this is possible/

I have a PC with Outlook 2000 and it does not appear to have the "suggest" option on Advanced eMail - hope this helps

In Outlook 2000 try the following: Tools/Options/Preferences tab - Email Options button/Advanced E-mail Options button ensure the tick is in for 'Automatic name checking' it may do the trick.

My Outlook 2000 has "Automatic Name Checking" ticked, but it still doesn't autocomplete.
