A friend has this problem and trying to sort it out for her I discovered I have the same problem: suppose a name is in the webmail address book (eg John for someone called [email protected]); if I type John when I want to send John an email I get an error message that the name is unknown - and I have to type the full email address instead. It's very irritating.Has anyone found a solution to this, please?
I see what you mean Stuartli; that hadn't ocurred to me and I don't know the answer. BUT I use Windows mail on my main PC and that doesn't have AutoComplete either, but it still finds the address in the address book if I type the name (not the email address)that I've given to that person. It's THAT aspect that is the irritation with Tiscali webmail, so I hadn't seen it as an AutoComplete problem
perhaps my invented example wasn't the best choice to explain the problem - try this instead: If my friend is called John Smith and his email address is [email protected] , I enter him in the webmail address book as John Smith and list his email address. What annoys me is that I can't just type John Smith when I want to send him an email. I suppose it IS an auto complete issue - if so, have any other Tiscali users got a solution?
