I have upgraded from "Outlook Express" to "Outlook" for my email.

When entering the information in the "TO"......where we put in the

name of the recepient..

On "Outlook Express" it would auto-fill.

I start typing D-E, and it would pull "Deanne"

from my address book.

How can I turn on that feature with "Outlook"?


This question was answered on March 5, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express are two different programs with different capabilities, although both can send and receive messages from the Internet There are two ways to share contact information between these two programs If, during Outlook Setup, you choose to upgrade a program that uses the Windows Address Book, Setup will do a silent conversion of the address entries to the Contact format used by Outlook

If you choose not to convert during Setup, you can convert at a later time by using the Import and Export Wizard Outlook provides a tool to assist you in converting Windows Address Book (WAB) information

The Windows Address Book is used by the following products:

Microsoft Internet Mail and News

Microsoft Outlook Express

Microsoft Outlook 98 and Microsoft Outlook 2000 Internet Mail Only (IMO)


You can store Address information in your Windows Address Book (WAB) and import WAB data to Outlook

How to Use the Outlook Import Export and Wizard

In Outlook, you can use the Import and Export Wizard as the interface for Address Book conversion Use the following steps to convert a Windows Address Book (WAB) file:

Start Outlook

On the File menu, click Import and Export

Click Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next

Click Outlook Express 4.x, 5 from the list

Select any combination of the Mail or Addresses from the items listed.NOTE: With the exception of rules conversion from Outlook Express, the steps to convert addresses are the same

Click Next

Select a destination for the imported address data

Select the appropriate duplicate items option, and then click Finish
