The other way you could do it is just type the entire name in the To box and hit Check Names and the box that opens will have a list of all the people with that name, then you just choose the one you want.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the feedback. Let me give you a bit more detail.
I would agree with you that with each letter I type the 'choices' avaliable list should get narrowed down quickly. And that was my expectation, but that is not what happens.
When I first type J the drop down shows me,
"Jack ....", and "Jmmcc .....", and "Jim A.....", and "Jack E.....", and "Lynn ....." and no others (there are 20 names that start with "J". If I then type the second letter "E" (I'm looking for "Jean .....") the drop down shows me "Jack ...." and NO others.
I'm using the '....' to keep the peoples email addresses concealed.
Again, if I click on "To" the pop up window works as you noted and I would expect it to work.
