    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...

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

    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...

    remove or turn off outlook.com contact folder from outlook 2016

    Indeed. from long ago, when first came out. My short experiments with it last week indicated that categories still didn't transfer, and affiliated groups weren't indicated on individual contacts. perhaps I missed something. Again, I don't remember what other issues may have been. and I...

    remove or turn off outlook.com contact folder from outlook 2016

    I wouldn't contradict your statement about MS not copying contacts from a pst to another contacts folder, however that doesn't leave much to explain how they get there. Some 400 contacts were in the outlook.com folder. I don't create contacts from phone, or from emails. All are created...

    remove or turn off outlook.com contact folder from outlook 2016

    Outlook 2016, installed locally. Several times i have found the Outlook.com contact folder populated by all (or sometimes most, no idea how the choice is made) of the contacts held in my local contacts folder. This means that all these contacts are now uploaded to outlook.com site. I have no...

    open Outlook with multiple windows.

    I believe that I asked about this some time ago. ie: if I have Outlook mail and calendar open in separate windows, how do I get them both to open the next time I start Outlook? If I simply close both windows separately only the main Outlook window will open next time. I was advised that the...

    Helping OL remember which calendars were selected

    I am understanding you to say that if clicking on the Outlook taskbar icon opens two windows: email and calendar, then multiple calendars won't be remembered. Correct? This also is what I read the problem to be in other threads. (Which led me to ask if there isn't a registry adjustment that...

    Helping OL remember which calendars were selected

    I am surprised. Seems there was another thread about this topic a while back (which I can't find ), and I see other people posting about it, with no solutions, at other sites. I have tried saving 'current view as a new view', saving as a calendar group. the only thing that works is changing...

    Helping OL remember which calendars were selected

    I have discovered that if I open calendar in new window, check the calendars that i want open. then change that window to eg mail, before going to file>exit, the next time I open OL, two windows open, one on the mail view, which I then change back to calendar, and all the checked calendars are...
