Addresses won't come up after a couple of times-in address book

We loaded the whole address book into our new Dell and we have to keep going to the address book to ''TO'' and clicking on it to get the address. If you repeat the same address within a few days it will automatically come up but after that you have to keep going back to the address book and slect it again. Very time consuming. Didn't happen on XP and our old computer. Now have Vista.

    I have Windows Mail. I can go to TOOLS and OPTIONS but there is no choice for E-MAIL OPTIONS. Under SEND it is already checked to " automatically complete e-mail addresses when composing". So I don't understand why it doesn't work all the time.

    Thank you for helping!!!!!!!

It appears that Windows Mail that comes with Vista will only cache the last 29 entries for auto completion...so its doing what its meant to do, thats the bad news. Good news is Windows Live Mail sounds like it may be a better alternative. Hope this helps. Happy new year to you too!

Assuming it's Outlook...

Tools --> Options --> E-Mail Options --> Advanced E-Mail Options, then check "Suggest Names..." at the bottom, then the usual Applies and OKs. You should be good then.

    Sorry about the Outlook red herring... This answer may be more informative.



    About the Autocomplete, it seems the issue isn't with you but with Windows Mail. There are literally hundreds of posts in the Microsoft tech forums about it from disgruntled people who used to have it in Outlook Express but no longer have it in Windows Mail. The way it goes is Windows Mail will only remember the last 29 e-mail addresses you use rather than the lots of old ones that Outlook remembers. If Autocomplete is that important to you, you may want to try using Mozilla Thunderbird or getting MS Outlook. I wish I could be more helpful.

How to put phone numbers on the blackberry 8120


you have 2 options. you can load them directly in your "address book" by going into your address book, menu button (bb icon left of trackball), select "New Address" and enter the info.
Option 2 , would be going into your address book, select "SIM phone book" and enter the info there.
Keep in mind, when you use the SIM phone book option, you can only enter their name and phone number, and after you are done, you have to import your SIM contacts to your address book.
Any contacts saved using the SIM option, will stay on your SIM card.
Any contacts using the Address Book option, will only remain on the phone, and not on your sim card.
ho[pe this helps!

How to transfer my black berry address to my new iphone


Hi Here are the steps

1) Load up Blackberry Desktop Manager 2) Click "Synchronize" 3) Click the "Configuration" tab at the top of the screen. 4) Click the "Configure Synch" button 5) Click on "Address Book". 6) If it doesn't take you to configuration automatically, click "Setup" 7) Select "Microsoft Outlook Express". 8) Select "One way sync from Device" and "Replace all data in the target application 9) Click "Use existing Main Identity 10) Click "Finish" - this should bring you back to "Select Device Application" where it should show you something like Address Book ---> Microsoft Outlook Express 11) Click "Ok" 12) Click on the "Synchronize" tab at the top. 13) Click "Synchronize now". It should go through a whole bunch of screens, eventually showing a confirmation dialog to confirm address book edits. 14) Click "Accept" 15) Your contacts should now be in Outlook Express. 16) Close BB Desktop Manager 17) Open iTunes if you don't have it open already. 19) Go to your iPhone's setup page in iTunes (click on the iPhone along the side menu) 20) Click on the "Info" tab 21) Under "Contacts", check the "Sync contacts with" checkbox, and select "Windows Address Book". "All contacts" should be automatically selected. 22) Click "Apply" at the bottom of the page. It should save your changes, and automatically sync your contacts. The following steps is only necessary if you don't intend to keep your iPhone synched with Outlook Express's address book (which I imagine is the case for most people). 23) Uncheck the "Sync contacts with" checkbox. 24) Click "Apply" at the bottom of the page

This shoulds help and please do let me know if your issue is solved

My e-mail coming to me is going to another address sometimes


changing email address will loose only the profile that you created from old email. If your talking about the address book and personal files ( like old emails ). All you have to do is Archive it and open it from the email client (Outlook, Outlook express, Thunderbird, etc.) that you're using from new email address.

Please tell us the email client that you are currently using so that I can tell you where to grab the address book and Personal files from default folder.
