Contact List Problem
Contact List problem: I have contacts that I added months ago. However, when I add them to a Contact List (and enter them by name), the software cannot find them. Thus I have to add them under their email address. Sometimes people have very obscure email addresses and it makes this very difficult. One of my contact lists has 12 people on it - 2 of them can only be added with their email address so their name does not show up on the list. The other 10 show up with both their name and their email address. Can you please fix this. One used to be able to click on an option to add the person to a contact list but that is gone.

I also am going crazy because I add a person to my contact list but when I then add that person to the recipients list of an email, I get nothing, nada, no results for that person's name. I must add the email address, and THEN it will populate the contact's name but not before. ALSO, I have an elderly lady whose name is properly identified in my contacts list but when it shows up in my email, it comes over as some guy's name. So, for example, instead of saying Suzie Q it says James Dean, or whatever. This contacts thing is about to make me lose my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can not add additional people to my contact list. Once I add them to the list they can not be found when creating an email. This is a very distributing problem. I maintain an extensive contact list and not being able to add additional people is a real problem. Is there help or is this just a complaint page?
When I am adding the recipients to an email, Outlook can no longer find email addresses that I have recently added to my people/contacts list. There is HELP info anywhere on how to solve this. This really is ridiculous that such a basic function of any electronic communication system does not work in Outlook! Come on Microsoft when are you going to fix this or tell me how I can solve the problem? Microsoft please respond.
