    Auto Fill in Addresses in Outlook 2K?

    I have spent a couple of very frustrating evenings trying to locate a feature in Outlook 2000 that will allow me to start typing an e-mail address in the To box that will then fill in the remainder of the address (assuming there are no duplicate beginning letters). I have used this feature in Outlook Express 5, and assumed that it would be available in Outlook 2000. Am I wrong?

    I use Windows 2000 and Office 2000 Pro.

    yes, you are wrong [img]/w3timages/icons/sad.gif[/img]

    outlook doesn't have autocomplete, it has resolution. you can type part of a name and resolve to it.

    Thanks very much. I was afraid Autocomplete didn't exist, but it was worth asking, even at the risk of sounding totally stupid [img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img]. I will try to get used to the ctrl-K combo then.

    This is a great (and very helpful) forum! Thank you!

    If the question is stupid, it's standing room only. [img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]It ranks up there as one of the most FAQ. Probably just ahead of hotmail in Outlook (no on that too)

    I read where you said you could put in part of the name and then resolve it .... could you explain this to a new user of Outlook ?

    just type in part of a name into the to field and normally outlook will autoresolve it. if not, hit control k and jump start it.
    outlook searches the address book for a match and returns the ones it finds. if more than one, it's underlined (red squiggley or green dotted) and a right click shows you what your choices are.
