Default Outlook 2000 contact question

I had to reinstall office2k on about 5 computers and all the people are telling me that in outlook when they start typing the name of a contact into a new message box, they would only have to type the first letter or two then the contact name would show up and they would press enter and then they could start writing the email. Well now it doesn't seem to do that. Anyone have any ideas on what might not be set correctly? thanks in advance.

Send a message via AIM to Win2kpatcher

This is due to the auto name check once they have sent an E-Mail to a recipient it will remember the address and come up as described. What I do for our internal users is select our entire local OU address book and simulate as if I was sending a letter to them, but once all there names are in the TO field I simply hit the "check name" button. Then of course cancel the message.
