    Outlook Email Autopopulate...

    I have over 1000 contacts and can not get the auto-populate to work when addressing / filling out the To window in a new email. I have to go into my contacts and search for the complete address wasting a ton of time. Auto-populate worked perfectly in my old Outlook Express and Windows Live email program. Microsoft support or Dell don't have a clue, hours / days on the phone. No luck. Does anyone have a suggestion? (Windows 10, Dell Precision 7920)
    Thanks Airpix / John

    What Outlook are you using....the windows 10 App or the web-based service or Outlook from an office suite?

    I'm using Outlook 2016 and that's exactly how I have to do it.....manually add each one. PITA.

    I take that back.....just went and checked mine again.

    I open a new email, click the "To" tab and in 2 - 4 seconds a window pops up with all my contacts. Then click on a contact and hit the "To" tab, and repeat the process till I'm done. Is this what you're talking about.

    I'm using Outlook Office, Microsoft Office Home and Business 2019, Version 1908. After clicking in the To box even after 30 minutes nothing happens
