automatically completing e-mail address

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by wjhashabranner, Jan 22, 2008.

  1. In Outlook Express when composing a new message I could type just th
    few letters of a persons name and if they were in my contact list th
    rest of the address would automatically be filled in. Can I do this i
    Vista Mail

    Also, are you SURE I cannot display my contacts in the left panel of m
    screen just as I did in Outlook Express? It's a real pain to have t
    open the contact list to find an e-mail instead of having it on th
    screen at all times

    Not quite the same, but you can have autocompletion using a separate
    list of the last 29 addresses you sent messages to. For this, click on
    Tools, then Options, then Send. If there if no check mark in the box
    before Automatically complete e-mail addresses when composing,
    click on this box and then Apply. Click on OK.

    So it's too hard to click on Tools, then Select Recipients in the new
    message window?
    I haven't found any way to do it and doubt that one exists.

  3. I checked and the box was already checked...oh, well. And I'm not lazy
    :) I just like to keep the contact list open and where I can see it.

    Thanks

    You can have your Contacts folder open all the time... even if you don't
    have WM open.
    It's just a folder.
