autofill E-mail address in outlook 2000

By barneye ·
I just upgraded serveral users from Outllok Express to Outlook 2000. In Express my users could start typing an e-mail address and Outlook Express would suggest a matching contact. Outlook 2000 does not do this. Is there a setting or check box I am missing?

In Outlook 2000, you can start typing but it doesn't begin checking the name until you tab out of the address field.

It sounds like the contacts list isn't been shown as an e-mail address book. To check, right-click on the contacts folder, properties, Outlook Address Book tab, and make sure the "Show this..." is checked. Hope that helps.

There is a check box.
Tools>Options On the Preferences tab click E-Mail Options.
Click Advanced E-Mail Options and second from the bottom make sure that the Automatic name checking is selected.
Whew, what a journey!
