Autocomplete names (e-mail adresses) in send to field in outlook 2003

Hi!

I have a client that is particularly important , but also particularly boring on some minor issues that have a tendency to be considered crucial.

They consider the autocomplete feature indispensible to them, so now that their systems are going to be upgraded from 98 to XP and outlook Express to Outlook 2003, the autocomplete feature aparently does not work even if you manage to import all the contacts.

Apparently the only way to make it work is to use the e-mail for each contact at least once. but for them that is not acceptable since they would have to go see the e-mail for each client for the first time they used it.

Any tips?

Not sure what you mean by "autocomplete doesnot work"

try this in outlook 2003

open outlook
go to tools --> options --> email options --> advanced email options
enable

suggest names while completing to , cc and bcc fields
press OK

now check if the autocomplete would work

Ah ok, it does it but it takes a few seconds, you actually have to wait if you have never used that contact before. Thanks.

Hi again, usually I reserve the grade A to those awnsers that are really good to hard questions. If for some reason this system does not apply here I accept constructive criticism. =)
