Helping a friend moving from win xp and outlook express to win 8 and office 2010.  In outlook express, he said he could choose a distribution list from the autocomplete list.  But doesn't have that now in outlook.

He can choose the dist list from the contacts list, but it's not in the autocomplete list.  I am going to fire up his old machine to see for myself if he DID have the dist list in the autocomplete.   but regardless of that, is there a way to get a dist list in autocomplete?

I remembered an article in EE a while back about this issue and here it is. Maybe it will help.

The autocomplete list only shows entries that have been already used on that very machine in outlook.

Mc:  yes, if I send an email to the dist list (choose it from contacts) then even immediately send another email, typing the distribution list name, it doesn't auto complete / suggest that list's name. it lists other emails that have been sent to previously.

should it be suggesting the dist list in autocomplete?

Well, do it like this: type the list name, then hit CTRL and K to autocomplete. The next time it will automatically suggest the distgroupname.
