Email address "Auto Complete" overrides what I wanted

Many email readers have a nifty feature of completing the email address soon after you start typing it.

This is a great feature, when it gets the right address. It saves you a lot of typing.


I sent a message to the mailing list, but no one has received it.

Sometimes, the Auto Complete feature fills in the wrong information. It's possible you sent your message to the wrong address.

Check your email Outbox and review the message sent to verify what address was used.

Can I turn off the Auto Complete feature?

Yes. Most email readers offer the option to turn off this feature.

Use Google to find instructions. (For example, search for: Email Address Auto Completion Outlook)
