    Esteemed members of OT: Is anyone familiar w/ MS outlook? They reinstalled outlook on my computer and Ive lost some functions w/ my address book. Previously, I could simply type in someone's name in my "Contacts" and press tab to start typing the mail, and the person's address would be dropped into the box. Now, when I type in a name it puts the red squiggly line under the name indicating that I need to select from similar names all of which are in the company's global address book. In the past, I would have to select from the company's address book only if their name wasnt in my personal address book. After having the tab and send feature and no longer having it, it is extremely annoying and inefficient. Can anyone help restore this feature for me? THanks sooo much.

    Tools->Services->Addressing Tab

    Also check Tools->Options->Email Options->Advanced E-mail Options->Automatic name checking

    Thanks - you rock! That helped. I also changed the order in which OUtlook goes thru my address books - i.e., it goes from personal to global; it was in the inverse previously.
