    Outlook 2003 will not put addresses in automatically

    I'm setting up my backup system as my main system is down for warranty repair on the motherboard.

    I had Outlook 2003 setup on the main system in both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8.1 64 bit. I know Office 2003 is not supposed to be compatible with Win 8, but it works OK.

    On the main system in Outlook 2003 when composing a new message, if I typed the first letter of an e-mail address in the "To" (or others) a drop down menu of e-mail addresses will appear and I could highlight the one I wanted and press enter and it would be entered on the address line. With the new install on this backup Win 8.1 system, when I highlight an e-mail address and press enter, all it does is enter the first letter and add a second line to the address line - see attached screen shot. I can't find where to enable this option (if it is an option).

    I'm having the same exact issue and curious if you were able to get it working. The easy option is to turn off Word as the email editor, but I've found some other issues where certain HTML formatted emails cause Outlook 2003 to crash when you attempt to reply. I'm sure this is because it's using IE 11 to render the HTML and something within Outlook doesn't like that.

    I really wanted to keep Office 2003 running under Windows 8 but doesn't seem that's going to be possible.
