How to make Contact Groups appear in Suggested Contacts

Not open for further replies.


In Outlook 2007 contact groups used to appear in the dropdown list of email addresses but do not in Outlook 2010. Is it possible to make these groups appear in the Suggested Contacts/dropdown lists?

You'll have to clarify your terms. You are using your own terms, not Outlook terms. Outlook 2007 had nothing called " contact groups." Nor could we know what you mean by " dropdown list." If you are referring to distribution lists and autocompletion suggestions, DL's will appear in autocompletion suggestions once you have sucessfully sent a message to that DL. Selecting a DL from the autcompletion suggestions is not a recommended practice however as it will often be out of date or corrupt.Russ Valentine
