Auto addressing in an e-mail

A co-worker of mine has Lotus Notes (6.5) setup so that every time he types in a name in the To: section of an e-mail, the names are looked up in our global address book, and the actual e-mail address is automatically entered into the To: field.  Of course, he doesn't remember how this feature got setup in the first place.  Any suggestions?

Isn't that standard behaviour??

If it isn't, he might have a local replica on his system of the names.nsf of the server. And he might also have this names.nsf mentioned in the local address book in the Preferences. You could check that.

I have to hit F9 in order for Notes to automatically resolve the name.

And you both use the same template for your mail databases? Hm... Need to think about this...
You will need to check that your settings for recipient type ahead are the same in the Mail tab of your location documents.  To find them you need to click on the location bar near the bottom right of your Notes client, between the quickpick and security bars, and then clcik edit current to see your current location settings.  If the recipient type ahead settings are the same then check for a local addressbook replica as Sjef suggested and check that you have the same settings on the server tab too.
