    After upgrading to SL (10.6.2), when I try to enter an address in a new email for a name listed as a "company" in Address Book, that name doesn't show up in the autofill list. I have to type (or copy & paste) the email address as though it weren't listed in Address Book. I shouldn't have to change all "company" listings to "personal names"; that's my only other "remedy" at this moment. No first and/or last names are entered on those Address Book cards. Any suggestions?

    My only suggestion is open the Address Book from the new message toolbar and drag and drop the business name into the To, Cc or Bcc field.
    You can just drag the "Business" group name from the left side of the Address Book if you want all of them. Right clicking Business in the field allows you to expand the addresses if required.

    Thank you for your reply. I had frequently been using copy & paste from Address Book card, but I was hoping I could get autofill to work instead of calling up Address Book. I am posting to Apple Feedback, as you have suggested.
