Turn on address auto complete?

I have been trying to turn on the autocomplete feature in outlook. if you
type the first letter of an address you have typed before it will complete
it for you, similar to what IE6 does for URL.

Does anybody know where to turn it on?

Thanks,

Peter

What version of Outlook?  Outlook doesn't do auto-complete. It has a feature
called auto-resolution.  If you enter part of a name or a nickname then tab
out of the field (or hit Alt-K [Check Names]), Outlook will attempt to
resolve the name against your address book. If it can't it'll red underline
it and you can right click on the name to manually resolve it. Outlook will
save the resolution for future
use.

In Outlook 2002, it will build a list of familiar addresses once you enter
the address the first time.  It will use this list in the future.  Contrary
to popular belief, it does not pull these addresses from the contact's
folder, but from a nk2 file that it builds dynamically.

Outlook 2003 changing global auto archive settings?
Outlook offers to Run Auto Archive every days. It allows you to run it more frequently, but I would like to run it less frequently. In other words, I would like to run it every 120 days and then archive the bottom four months. It doesn't seem that you can change the auto archive setting above 60 days. Is there a way to do this? I have the box checked to ask me before auto archiving - but if I say no, will it continue to ask? Or, will it never ask again? Essentially I would like to archive every 4 months and not more frequently - and I would like to archive my inbox and my se...

Strange SMTP addresses in Public Folders
Hello all I noticed today that several of my public folders have hundreds of randomly named SMTP addresses in the "E-mail Addresses" tab under the properties of each folder.
