When I compose a new message and start typing a contacts name that is in my address book, it does not bring it up? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks,
BD

Hello BD,

Sounds to me like the "Suggest" option is off. You can turn it on by doing the following:
Go to Tools | Options, click the Preferences tab, select Advanced e-Mail Options, and check/tick "Suggest names while completing To, CC and BCC fields".

Regards,

Ax

Try renaming the *.NK2 file for your profile (C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook) and restart Outlook. Outlook will create a new one for you.

Note: You can rename or delete the NK2 file if you want to get rid of all addresses in your autocomplete file.
