Outlook 2010 autocomplete for contacts
I've got several folders created in my contacts.
When I open a new email and start typing an address, autocomplete will only find the address in the root folder in contacts, does not see the addresses in folders I created. How do I fix this?

That article refers to the nicknames, that used to be saved in the nk2 file in pre 2010 Outlook. Which I guess is what MS calls autocomplete. That is not what I am referrring to. I called it autocomplete by mistake.It looks like I used the wrong term for when Outlook completes based on Contacts. That they call Auto Resolution or Auto Resolve.
Enter part of a name in the To, CC, or BCC fields and Outlook resolves the name to an address in your address book
I guess what I really need is to find out how to have all my Contact folders (referred to above) shown when I click the To: button, since that is probably the list that Outlook is using when completing the email address as I type it.
