Is there a way to add all your contacts to autocomplete in Outlook 2010 without the need of sending them an email first?  We're using Outlook to retrieve data from a Hotmail account through the Outlook Connector if that helps.


Thanks!

You wouldn't have to actually send the mail, but to compose a single one targeting all email addresses to include. I'm not certain if you need to save the mail then as draft, but I would do so.

It worked, but is there a way to get Outlook to autocomplete by First Name / Last Name too?

Address AutoComplete only works for stuff you entered. Unless you have contact entries properly formatted so that an emial to them displays the address as desired, the answer is "no".
