Author/Date To: autocomplete doesn't find non-default email addresses

Ok, so this is hard to describe - but I have a contact with two email addresses (work and home) and when I go to make a new mail and I type their name in, I see only one address (I'm not using the address book just the autocomplete to: field). When I start typing in by email address it doesn't find the non-default address.

Is this a feature (to only search for the default addresses)?

Right click the recipient and select the non-default address?

That does work, but I can't search for it. Often I just type in part of the email address (ie: nsch... instead of Nick Schirmer) but it won't search for anything but primary.

That is currently how it works. I never thought of searching for non-primary addresses. Hmmmm. Would you like that added?

It would be a nice feature to see, but I wouldn't put it high on your priority list. Thanks!

That does work, ...


It doesn't work for me, and is very annoying. I have to send a message to a person, both to the primary AND the secondary (non-default) address.

Once the primary address is in the list of recipients, I can right-click on it, and see the other address(es). But I can't select the secondary one. In fact, clicking on either one makes no difference. Should a tick mark appear next to the address?

Whatever I do, the primary address is in the list of Recipients.

This is in Win 98SE. I haven't tried in Linux or Win 2000/XP yet.

Thanks,

Once you right click on the recipient and select an email address the address in <...> changes to the email address you select. So if you want to email both address' for someone add them twice, right click on one and select the alternate address. Then you should have 2 recipients, both with the same name but different email addresses.

This does work for me. Maybe a tick next to the currently selected address would be nice I guess.
