There are a couple of reasons why the AutoComplete function in your Outlook email account does not work. First, in order for AutoComplete to work, you must have at least once typed in the full email address you want to complete automatically, otherwise Outlook has no history from which it can draw. Second, AutoComplete may be disabled. You must enable AutoComplete for it to work.

Open Microsoft Outlook and click the "Tools" menu. Click "Options." Click "Preferences" and select "E-mail Options." Click "Advanced E-Mail Options." Click to add a check to the "Suggest names while completing To, Cc, and Bcc fields" box. Click "OK." Hope this helps.

    Incoming emails are not appearing in the inbox folder of Microsoft Outlook 2010.

    Could be your Outlook profile got corrupted somehow. If you use your account settings on another PC w/Outlook does the trouble follow? Or is it strictly w/your PC? Obviously, other profiles are working fine (your partner's). One solution might be to backup your .pst file to the C: drive or a USB drive, completely delete your old profile, and build a new one. Once your confirm that email is working properly, then attempt to reload your old .pst file to get all your old email back.

    Something else you could try is to open Outlook in Safe Mode. This will run Outlook with minimal addons in order to eliminate the possibility that some sort of addon is the culprit.

    You can use one of these methods to start Outlook using a command line switch:
    Hold Ctrl key as you click the Outlook shortcut.
    If you use Vista or Windows 7, type outlook.exe /safe in the Start Search field on the Start menu then press Enter.

    How do you import contacts

    When you install Outlook 2010, it automatically converts the Personal Address Book that you used in an earlier version of Microsoft Outlook. Outlook 2010 then adds the converted data to your Outlook 2010 Contacts folder.

    If Outlook 2010 does not automatically convert your Personal Address Book, you can import your Personal Address Book to Outlook 2010. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Start Outlook 2010.
    2. Click the File menu.
    3. Click Open, and then click Import. The Import and Export Wizard opens.
    4. Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
    5. Click Personal Address Book, and then click Next.
    6. Click Browse, locate the Personal Address Book that you want to import, and then click OK.

      Note Earlier versions of Outlook assign a .pab file name extension to a Personal Address Book. By default, Outlook stores the Personal Address Book in the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
    7. Click Next.
    8. Click Finish to import the Personal Address Book.

    Contacts transfer from samsung b7320 to outlook 2010

    might be this will help you

    This works for me on Windows 7 RTM x64.

    1. Install Office 2010 x64.
    2. Open Outlook and configure your profile and let it do its thing.
    3. When done, exit Outlook
    4. Install WMDC and click OK to ignore the setup error that Outlook is not installed.
    5. BACKUP your profile/PST file!!
    6. Install Outlook 2007 (ONLY Outlook 2007, not any of the other apps and not any of the shared stuff like OCR, etc.)
    7. Sync your device. Click OK if prompted that your profile was created with a newer version of Outlook and may contain data not usable in this version. IN MY EXPERIENCE, there has been no adverse effect that I can notice.
    8. Disconnect your device and reopen Outlook 2010, and ignore the message that "Either Outlook is not installed...", as Outlook should come right up after that.

    To sync again, simply EXIT Outlook 2010 before connecting your device.

    Automatic address, compose, forward, does not work.

    Completing addresses when addressing an email works a bit different as Outlook doesn’t have an AutoComplete feature but has an AutoSuggest feature a Check Names feature instead.

    The subtle difference between the two is that the AutoSuggest feature doesn’t have a direct relation to your Contacts folder or other address lists configured in your Address Book. Instead, AutoSuggest uses a cache which contains a list of addresses that you’ve previously used.

    Outlook also has another feature which is similar to AutoComplete; Check Names.

    Check Names can work interactively and by default also works as a background process.

    Check Names – Interactive
    To use Check Names interactively, you type part of the name or address and then press the Check Names button on the Toolbar or Ribbon or press its keyboard shortcut (for most localized versions this is CTRL+K). This will search in your Address Book for that part of the name. If only a single address is resolved, it will directly show this in the To-field (or CC or BCC field). If multiple addresses are found, then it will prompt you with a dialog to select the correct address from.

    Check Names – Background
    When you only type part of a name or address and then switch to the message body, Check Names will perform a background search in your Address Book. If only a single address is resolved, it will autocomplete the address for you. If multiple addresses are found, it will underline the address with a red scribble line.

    When you press the Send button while an address is not fully resolved, you’ll get prompted to select the correct address.

    To turn of this background feature of Check Names go to;
    Tools-> Options…-> E-mail Options…-> Advanced E-mail Options-> disable option: Automatic name checking
