How do I use the autocomplete feature to fill in email addresses in AOL Mail?

After you type the first few letters of a Contact's name or email address in the To:, Cc:, or Bcc: boxes of a new email, AOL Mail displays matches from your Contacts list. Just click a name or press return on your keyboard to complete the address.

Note: This feature works with address books that have fewer than 4,000 entries and is available on advanced browsers only, such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, and Safari 1.2.4 or higher.

To use autocomplete:

1. Click New in the upper-left corner to start a new email.

2. In the To:, Cc:, or Bcc: boxes, type at least the first letter of the email address or name of the Contact to whom you'd like to send a message. A matching Contact (or drop-down list of multiple matches) appears.

3. Click the email address of the person you're writing, or just press return on your keyboard if the name is selected. You can repeat this to add more recipients.

Note: Type more characters to fine-tune the list of suggestions.

That's it! Easy-peasy right?
