Today's puzzlement

  jack 17:35 02 Oct 2008

how did my computer know a new email address before it had received anything?

Phone rang, an aunt in her eighties ring to say she now has a computer and on line is isn't marvellous
[I have to say this lady as i said in her eighties charges about in a salmon pink BMW/ Mini Cooper rag top]
So she said her is my email address write it down.
I said better than that I am Thunderbird now,
I'll type you in and send you a mail so that I get into her system.
Here is the puzzlement
No previous contact by electronic means, we were speaking on the phone.
I typed her first name in the address line
and the address came up- complete as if it was in my address book already
How come?

Is it a Hotmail address?

What difference would that make?
She did not know my address until I sent her a mail that came up
Actually it is Talk Talk
