I would liek to use autocomplete that I have on vista here at work but we are
using outlook 2000. how do i turn it on so that when I have previously typed
Amy Jones and Amy Smith and then I open a new email and type just Am, the
autocomplete allows me to choose form my previous contacts or form my global
address book to complete the rest? So I do not hav eto type the complete
name each time orlook it up each time?

"Outlook will save the resolution for future use."

What future use? With autocomplete, when the user begins typing an email
address, Outlook (2002 of later) presents the user with previously used
address that match. With Outlook 2000, the user will be forever ctrl-King (or
alt-King), right?
