Who appears in the type-ahead list when I address an email?

When you address an email or a meeting invitation, a list of names and addresses appears as you type. The people in that list are your recent contacts. They are chosen automatically, based on the people with whom you recently emailed, chatted, and had meetings.

To view the complete list


From Contacts, click Recent Contacts in the navigation pane.

To add someone to the list


You cannot directly add someone to recent contacts, since recent contacts are determined automatically. However, you can change the criteria for who is added to recent contacts. See How do I change who is added to Recent Contacts?.
