Outlook 2003 Minor Setup Problems

I have just reinstalled Outlook 2003 and while the Contacts are their they don't automatically appear when I start entering a recipient in a new email. Does this feature only kick in when I have already sent at least one email to a particular recipient or can it be turned on somehow?

Also, how do I get Outlook to automatically connect to a dial up account when pressing Send/Receive? At the moment it requires a connection to be made prior to sending or receiving..

1) Yes. but make sure it is enabled via TOOLS - OPTIONS - EMAIL OPTIONS - ADVANCED OPTIONS
Tick the "Suggest names" box.

2) Check TOOLS - OPTIONS - MAIL SETUP

Go to Contacts.
Right-click on the Contacts folder, select "properties".
On the Outlook Address Book tab, check the box that says "show this folder as an email address book".
click ok.

For the second part of your question, see

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HP052786621033.aspx

and this page

http://members.ozemail.com.au/~djlane/connect_win98.htm

as the appropirate section (automating connections to the internet) is substnatially similar for Windows XP as it is for Windows 98.
