I want to prevent outlook from completing a contact that I have not finished after clicking send. For example, I have a contact in the GAL name Bobby. In the TO field, I type only Bob and then click send. Outlook is automatically resolving Bob into Bobby.

This is very dangerous and I want to disable it. I went into options and disabled both "Automatic name checking" and "auto complete". Is there a way to prevent outlook from behaving this way? This is for Outlook 2013
 
No, it will always resolve names on send - both of the options are for resolving names as you type in the address field. Actually, it might be better to leave them enabled so you can check the names before you are ready to hit send.

You can try adding a semicolon - bob; - or garbage - sfgnpgu - to force the name picker dialog. The only other way is to type enough of the name to be unique or type the alias.
