I am using MS Outlook 2000 on W2K Professional.  I have about 1000 contacts in my address book in Outlook and I just switched computers.  I used to be able to type in the name of the person I am sending my email to and it would recognize the person's name and underline and authenticate who I am sending my email too.  Now when I type the person's first name in, it will not automatically recognize and underline the email address that I am trying to send my email too, instead I actually have to go to my address book and select the person I want to send my email too.  Please, let me know if there is a setting in Outlook that I need to select or how I can fix this email lookup problem.  Let me know if you need more information.  Thanks in advance.
