Names do not appear when I type them into Outlook

(Applies to: ePreserver and Address Magic)

Problem: Outlook doesn't automatically fill in name and email addresses when you start typing their names.

Cause: Outlook only does autocomplete for names you've typed in before, not necessarily names in your address book.


Outlook won’t populate the auto-complete cache automatically but it’s a fairly simple task for users.

Open a new message and click the To button, select all of the names in the Suggested Contacts folder and add them to the message. Repeat for your Contacts folder. Close the message without sending.

This method works in all versions of Outlook that use autocomplete.
