    :mad: My MS Outlook in MS Office 2000 SR Premium doesn't seem to have an option to enable auto complete of email addressee. I followed this path: In Tools | Options | Email Options | Advanced E-Mail Options. This option doesn't exist. Help!

    Hi johnwalk

    As I understand it Autocomplete was not a feature of Outlook until version 2002.
    The earlier versions of Outlook use Autoresolution.
    If you start keying in the first few letters of the name, then Tab out of the field, Outlook will try to resolve the name.

    Or you can click Alt+K for Name check and names similar to your entry will appear in a separate window for you to choose from.

    If Outlook cannot resolve it (using the Tab out method), there will be a red wavy line underneath the entry. You can then Right click on the entry and resolve the name with the choices provided, Outlook should remember that selection the next time you use that same entry.

    Either EAFiedler meant Ctrl+K or it works with either Alt+K or Ctrl+K.
