    The autocomplete feature in microsoft outlook 2003 only works with some of my contacts. Not sure why this is? For instance, I have many contacts that start with i, but when I type in i, only some of these contacts come up as possiblilities? Any and all suggestions as to what my be going on are very welcome. Thanks!

    Have you rebuilt your autocomplete list?? This list is populated when you send emails. As a quick alternative, unplug your network cable, send a test message to all your contacts, then delete that email from outbox. This will populate all your contacts in autocomplete list. Hope this helps

    Also I was wrestling to find out why autocomplete didn't work. The reason was, I was using default profile. You have to create a profile after upgrading from Outlook2000 to 2003. Control panel->Mail->Create Profile->New. Then only Outlook2003 setup .NK2 file for that profile.
