I cannot find anything about this issue by googling it. I can't even find what it's called.
When I sort emails by sender, then click on any one (just to "select" the inbox, I can type the first few letters of another sender's name and outlook jumps to that sender. It used to work just fine, but recently, fo some reason, I cannot type fast enough. I can get one or two letters in but on the third letter, it goes to that letter in the list.
For example, typing s m jumps to smith, but typing s m i jumps to isaacs unless I type it faster than my fingers can move.
Again, it used to work OK up to five, six letters. Is there a setting somewhere?
