I set up distribution lists in Outlook so I can give people nicknames. That way I don't have to type their full name (there are thousands of people in my address list). Plus there's one guy that I email regularly who's got a doppelganger in the company. So I have lists like 'mikev' and 'juanr'. They all work fine.
But once in a while I run into one that just won't work. The two that Outlook refuses to recognize are 'grege' and 'miker'. Is there something special about these names that I'm not seeing? I've restarted Outlook and the computer a few times since creating the 'miker' list and still it won't recognize. Right clicking on 'miker' doesn't bring up the DL, it just brings up names of people in the org with names like that.
Is there a better way to do this nickname thing? I'm used to gmail -- it seems to be a heckuva lot smarter about figuring out who I'm likely to mean when I type 'greg'.
