Check names for Contacts without resolved email



I use an add-in to send SMS from outlook. If a contact is registered with a
mobile number but no email adress or fax number, the Check name feature does
not work. How to enable also contacs with mobile number as Contacts that can
be resolved with Alt-K?

speak to the add-in developer - AFAIK Outlook only looks at valid email

Alt+K (or Ctrl+K if not in the name field) should resolve the name (it does
here, although I rarely need to use it - the names resolves when I tab out
of the To field). You won't be able to use the To button to pick a name if
there isn't an email addy or fax #.
