This field you are talking about has "Recepient" type.
I'm not sure about Outlook 2000 but in Outlook 98 one can't create a custom recepient field. Instead of creating of a new field use one of the standard fields from other items types. For example: E-mail-1, 2, 3 or CC, BCC from mail item. I mean simply open Field choser and drag one of those fields into your form.

The answer is good for the email items, but I'd like do the same with the "Full Name" field of a "Contact" item. Probably my answer wasn't so clear.
