    In Outlook, go to Tools>Options>Preferences tab. Click on the "E-mail Options" button, then on the "Advanced e-mail Options..." button. Put a check mark in the box for "Automatic name checking." Click on all the OK buttons to close the windows.

    Outlook, for reasons known only to its developers, will not complete an address until you have moved on to another field. In other words, type in enough of the name or address for Outlook to be able to recognize and complete it, then move the cursor to the Subject field or the message field, then the address will complete.
