    new labeled phone field

    Diane, thanks. I know that other fields can hold a cell phone number. When I look at the car or mobile field on the phone (or on Outlook for that matter), how will I know whose number it is or where it goes to?

    new labeled phone field

    OL16: I have some contacts that have more than one cell phone number. I also have an iphone. I sync OL to iphone using Companionlink (I don't think that this is instrumental to the problem). I can add a note to the cell phone number (eg " 111-111-1234 Sarah cell ") in Outlook to id the number...

    Outlook 2019 having issues with 'people search' and not making suggestions in email To: etc

    I think that I have solved the problem. took hours of searching and trial and error. I looked again at the address book options (where diane pointed me to, above). I noticed that in addition to global address book (whatever that is?) there were 2 "contacts" address books. one was already at the...

    Outlook 2019 having issues with 'people search' and not making suggestions in email To: etc

    Seems like this is worse than i thought. Apparently not a OF19 problem. I installed OF16 and having the same issue with Outlook not being able to suggest contacts ('check names') when addressing an email. A some setting or service on this new computer? I have not been able to figure out what...

    Outlook 2019 having issues with 'people search' and not making suggestions in email To: etc

    Diane, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling office 2019. I still do not see, when addressing an email, the red squiggly line below a newly used name, or the pop up window asking which possible name do I want to select. It only tells me 'no suggestions'. This must be a setting...

    Outlook 2019 having issues with 'people search' and not making suggestions in email To: etc

    Thanks Diane. this seems to have fixed the People Search. Still having problem with Outlook finding suggestions for names in email. - type a name in To: field (if the name has been used previously it will appear as suggestion). - In OL16 a red line would eventually appear under the name...

    Outlook 2019 having issues with 'people search' and not making suggestions in email To: etc

    In the past MS hasn't shown itself to be responsive to problems. They're more focused on the next sales pitch. Our best hope is that Diane has a workaround or solution for this issue.

    Outlook 2019 having issues with 'people search' and not making suggestions in email To: etc

    Diane, thanks for suggestion. I tried emptying the autocomplete. didn't help. When I ask to check names in email To: field, it comes back with 'Outlook doesn't recognize XXXX', when I ask to show more names it always is looking in the outlook.com data file. I would have to keep switching to...

    Locally Installed version of Outlook in Office 2019, (not 365). From beginning, 3 days ago, there have been problems with finding contacts. Sometimes the entire name has to be typed. This happens in 'search people' . and not finding names when typing into email To: fields. I can use drop...

    right. all 3 accounts are through the same server. all the same as last week, before the problem started. Somehow, deleting and re-establishing the default account started this. or so it seems. another Outlook mystery. Jeffrey

    unchecking "receive mail items" from the two alias accounts seems to have fixed the problem. I don't understand why this happened. I am pretty sure that I didn't have those options unchecked previous to trying the IMAP setup. thanks for figuring out a bandaid solution for some screwy...

    exactly. that's the question. why isn't it working like that anymore, since I experimented with setting up (didn't finish the setup) the imap account? All three are Pop. I added "email account" to the view. You are correct. All email from yesterday shows all fastmail.fm email as coming...

    Replies being sent from wrong account

    to make this a bit stranger. I just tried setting the "reply e-mail" name in account setup to secondalias@fastmail.fm to secondalias@fastmail.fm ( already tried setting "reply email" in the other addresses to their respective names, but it didn't make any difference when I replied). but...

    Outook 2016. Win10 I have a default pop account at default@fastmail.fm, also another pop account through the same fastmail.fm account as firstalias@fastmail.fm (I guess this called an alias?) . all mail is sent and received through the default@fastmail.fm account login. In the past if I...
