Another Way to Enter E-Mail Addresses in Outlook Express
You can enter an address by entering only part of the name. To see how this works, run Outlook Express and click Compose Message. When the New Message dialog box opens, type part of a name. Let's say you type


Since Chris is such a common name, you may have more than one instance of it. If you press Ctrl-K, you'll get a list of all the people in your Address Book named Chris. You can then double-click the correct one to enter it, and continue with your message.

Of course, you save more time when you are entering less common names. For example, if you want to send mail to someone whose last name is Cholmondely, you will probably only have to enter sper before the whole name appears.

This also works in Outlook 2000 as well.
