I have a close coworker whom I email almost daily. Let's call her "Leigh Wilson". The global address book at my company has several other people with the first name "Leigh" and/or the last name "Wilson", so when I create a new email I can't just type
wilson or even
lwilson in the
To: field — I have to type out
How can I make it so that I can type something short (e.g.
lw) and have Outlook know that means "Leigh Wilson"?
I tried adding her to my local contact list and then filling in the
Nickname field (on the details tab). I also tried creating a distribution list named
lw with her as the only member. Neither worked.
I'm using Outlook 2007 if that matters.
