outlook autocomplete function

  egretta 10:11 12 Jan 04

I use Microsoft outlook (2002) for e-mail as well as using the 'contacts' part of the programme for keeping telephone, fax and postal details of contacts. The problem is that when I write e-mails the autocomplete function for e-mail addresses doesn't distinguish between e-mail addresses and fax and phone numbers. If a contact has data in these fields as well as the e-mail address field, Outlook wont autocomplete and tells me it has multiple entries for the contact in question. Obviously I can get around this by going into the address book and selecting the e-mail address 'manually' but this does rather undermine the usefulness of the autocomplete function. Is there a way around this? Am I overlooking something obvious?
