How to add contacts to predictive recipients in Outlook 2010

In Outlook 2010, when I start a new email I and begin to type someones email address many times it will complete the email address for me in what I guess is some type of "predictive recipient" function.

Unfortunately, not all my contact are part of this predictive function.  How do I go through and add other contacts to this functionality?

They are added automatically as you use them.

Are you aware of CTRL-K? Start typing a users name into the TO: box and then press CTRL-K.  This will look up and present you with a list of all known contacts that have the part name you typed in it.

Thanks, the cntrl-K works good.

However, if I want to just add all of my contacts tot he predictive typing is it possible to do that all at one time?

Also, I have a bunch of people named "john" and would like to keep them all as contacts.  However, I do not want them all to come up when I begin typing the word "John".  Is there a way to remove some of them without deleting their contact?

Thanks!

No, outlook will learn every email address you use or no at all. I know of no way to populate in advance with 2010 sorry.

When the list pops up with all the Johns in, you can click the x to delete but of course next time you email that person they come back.

create a new email. add all of your contacts to the emails TO: field. Close it, don't save the draft.

It used to work in 2007 - not positive in 2010.

There's no nk2 file in 2010. Its "suggested contacts" now. A separate address book. That's why i suggested to start a new email and add all of your contacts to it. It works in a pinch.
