Is it possible to have Outlook search my Contacts for automatic addessing? When I author a new message in Word and start to type in the "To" field it will automatically insert addresses from my address book, but it will not look to my Contacts. Is this even possible to have automatic addressing do this?

The office version is Office 2002 on Windows XP Pro.

This should help
open outlook
go to tools --> options --> Email options --> advanced email options and check
suggest names when completing To, CC and BCcc fields.
