    I have recently started using Windows Mail instead of BtYahoo web-based email. When I start typing a name in the 'To' box, sometimes a drop-down box appears with name options, other times not. However, all my contacts are there if I click on the 'To' button to select a name. Any suggestions?

    Hi Janet,

    I believe by design that Windows Mail only remembers the last 29 contacts.

    If you want better support for the contacts auto complete feature you can try upgrading to Windows Live Mail.

    Please let us know if you switch to Windows Live Mail and if it fixed the problem for you.
    :thanks:-Raymond

    Following my query, I have noticed that Windows Mail automatically suggests addresses after I have typed them in once already, so this should solve the problem.
    Yours Janet
