    I am using Outlook 2002 (getting an upgrade to 2003 any day now) but I have a heck of a time finding emails that I have sent...some of them are in this format Joe Example and others are in this format (Joe Example ([email protected]) for example. Is there any way to designate how addresses format when you create an email? If I wait a couple seconds after typing the name Outlook format it with the parenthesis which is fine but I seem to have to wait a bit for that to happen. Maybe I am just impatient but I am trying to standardize as much of Outlook as I can.

    I don't know why yours takes time to display, mine does as soon as I type the name.
    If I have the address in the display as window, it will display the name and address. If I have just the name selected, it will only display the name.
    Open Contacts in Outlook and when you double click on a contact, look on the right and you will see two boxes, the first is beside E-mail and the next is beside Display as:.
    Do you have autocomplete on? Tools> Options> Preference tab> E-mail Options button> Advanced E-mail Options> under When sending a message, Automatic name checking and Suggest names while completing To, Cc, and Bcc fields should be checked.

    Maybe I am just expecting it to be instant, I type even a partial name and it autofills so I think I have it set up right...
