Last week I needed to send an email to a contact at Contoso, a company we partner with on marketing materials. Unfortunately, I had not emailed my contact in about a year and I couldn’t remember her name, let alone her email address. Since we had only exchanged a few emails I had neglected to add her to my Outlook contacts. However, with Outlook 2010 I was still able to find her email address quickly using Suggested Contacts.
Suggested Contacts automatically keeps track of everyone you send a message to. Unlike the Auto-Complete List that appears when you begin typing a name or e-mail address in the To, Cc, or Bcc boxes of a message, you can search your suggested contacts, and there is no maximum number of suggested contacts (the Auto-Complete List has a maximum of 1,000 entries).
Here’s how I found my Contoso contact. In the Navigation Pane, I clicked Contacts. Then I clicked the Suggested Contacts folder. In the search box near the top I entered @contoso, knowing that my contact’s email address would end with @contoso.com or @contoso.net. Sure enough, I found her — Anna Lidman. For good measure, I dragged Anna’s contact business card from Suggested Contacts to my Outlook Contacts folder so I would have it handy in the future.
Thanks to Suggested Contacts I don’t feel stupid when I forget someone’s email address or even their name; I can easily search or browse and find the people I’m looking for.
Let us know if you’ve had an occasion to use Suggested Contacts and what you think of this new feature.

It would be nice to be able to link the GAL to the auto-complete function without a third-party tool that costs extra...
Suggested contacts also catches when I type email addresses incorrectly, because it sees them as unknown contacts.
How do export my addrerss llist from OUTLOOK eXPRESS INTO oUTLOOK 2010?
I second Blair's comment - it'd be nice to be able to somehow quickly add the new emails to existing vCards - almost all of my suggested contacts are alternate email addresses.
I have new PC with Windows 7 Pro. When all my emails addresses were copied across (from XP Pro) initially once I started to put letter in the To box, suggested emails appeared in a drop down box. Suddenly a change. While the PC is on and I'm using Outlook it will suggest those addresses used since last time system powered up. Once the PC is turned off, they are gone - back to zero suggested contacts.
Looks as if a box to remember them is un-ticked. Any suggestions how to fix ?
When someone send you a group email and you only see their name, how do you extract their email address from their name and save it to Excel 2007?
