Outlook 2000 Email AutoComplete

Posted on 2007-08-06

In outlook 2000, when you create a new message.  Outlook usually will remember email address that you've previously entered.  I have an install that is not doing this, and I thought it was just a built in option that has not configuration.  Is there something else that I should look at to get this working?

    - Go to the Tools pull-down menu and choose Options
    - Click the E-Mail Options button, and then the Advanced E-mail Options button
    - To enable Auto Complete, check the box for "Suggest names while completing the To, Cc and Bcc fields

    (Outlook 2002). Suppose it will also work for your version :)

    Greetings rdabate !

    If you are asking about the ability to type in a few letters in the TO line and Outlook fills out the rest of the address, this is the "auto complete" functionality.

    Autocomplete doesn't exist in Outlook 2000.  You can use Outlook Express or Outlook 2002 / 2003.  Here is the documentation:
    Automatic e-mail address completion is not available in Outlook 2000 (325340);EN-US;325340

    Outlook 2000 use an auto resolution feature. Here is how it works:
