Hi,
I'm looking for the settings in Outlook 2000 that will auto fill the email address when I start to type the email address in the "To" field. The person already has a contact entry in my Address Book.

Sunray did give me this answer -

Check this

right-click "contact" folder
go to "properties"
go to "outlook address book" tab
and check "show this folder as address book"

Then go to tools ---> options --> Email options --> Advanced email options
and check "suggest names while completing To, cc and Bcc fields"

This seemed fine on my work computer, but when I got home to my personal PC that has the issue, the "Suggest names while completing To, CC and BCC fields" was not there. There are less tick box selections on my home PC.
My outlook version is MS Outlook SP3 from the Office 2000 Premium suite.

Thx again

Scott

Try right-clicking the Contacts from your shortcut bar/folder list
and choose properties.

From the Outlook Address Book - choose Show this folder as an email address book...

Hi scottyboy77,

Looks like for Outlook 2000 this is what you need to do ..

/// The following is what told by petelong in your previous question

for 2K you cant by default look here http://www.slipstick.com/emo/2000/up001108.htm#autocomplete

If it works , points need to be given to petelong..

Thanks

Gee Pete - if there wasn't an explicit rule against point-passing, I'd post some for you right now....
That's a pitiful 'sad face' you got there...
Cheer up! :D
