Why won't Outlook Prefill my "to" line automatically?

Question

I have recently installed Outlook 2000 on my computer. (Before I had Outlook Express). In Express, when I was in the "TO" field of my message I could start typing their email address and it would prefill for me. Is their a way to do this in Outlook? Seems like my only option is to pull it from the address book or I can type the person's name in there.

Outlook should work the same way as outlook express If you have the person in your contacts list when you type their last name, first name and you press tab the persons name should appestat with an underline The email address will not appear
