Quick Question:  We use Server 2003 with the latest Exchange version and OWA.  On our local machine OPutlook obviously remembers email addresses you have already sent emails to - i.e it starts to autofill a recipients name or email address as you start typing it.  However is there a way to let our OWA client users out in the field have that same functionality.  I shtere a way to cofigure something that once they have neterd joeschom@yahoo.com and sent him an email - that they do not need to reneter the whole thing each time thye send him an email?

Thx

No - the autofill feature of Outlook uses a feature called the "nickname" file.  This is stored as local information on the workstation, not on the server, so it's only stored at that one location.  Because OWA is a web-based application, there is no corresponding "nickname" list like there is in Outlook.  The only way to do this (and it would be somewhat clumsy, IMO) would be to add the contacts to the GAL in the form of AD Contacts, so that the information would be on the server.

Hope this helps!
