In early 2016, Outlook will upgrade its accounts with a smart contact manager that will display suggested email addresses and emails in the To: and CC: fields.

How it’s going to work:

Names of the people you email most frequently will be displayed by Outlook and will correct the spelling mistakes you do with the names of those who you want to send the email. For example if you write “Catherine” instead of “Kathryn”, then also the Outlook will suggest “Kathryn” only.

If you have frequently sent emails to same set of people for example Steve, Anna and Bob, and if in you new email if you include only Steve and Anna, then it will ask you ‘Do you also want to include Bob?’. If prompt will only show when Outlook is highly confident you want to add Bob and will not get in your way.

In the message Outlook will automatically search for key information and will use it to add a new entry in your calendar, without any user interaction.
