Auto Complete in Outlook 2000

  Snakey 19:26 24 Mar 03

PC running Win98SE and Office 2000

When I used Outlook Express as my Email editor it would Auto Complete (Suggest matches from my Address Book)When I began to type the Name or Email Address. Since installing Outlook 2000 this does not happen. I have checked the Advanced Settings in Options and have ticked the Name Checking option. I have also enabled Auto Complete in IE.

I have tried the above fix but still unable to solve the issue.

I have reformatted the HDD and reinstalled Office 2000.


Using Outlook Express 5, having Office 2000 installed, I Exported my Address Book & Emails etc to Outlook 2000. When I began to type names in the 'To....' field Auto Complete did not function.

Tried the fix above.

Exported Outlook to a backup.PST file. Reformatted HDD, reinstalled Office and imported backup.PST. Still no Auto Complete.

Help Please
