    I specially has used hotmail and I like its autocomplete for To Address. It works very nice like it not only shows saved contacts but also suggests address on which I have sent email but they are not saved in contacts.

    The most important thing is it is very fast. It is not ajaxtoolkit's automcplete what is this control. Plz guide me about its implementation I have to do same in a web.

    thanks Thanks THANKS

    @Haansi: I imagine it's a custom control that the Hotmail team wrote. Since the page doesn't refresh, it has to be AJAX. Assuming you have the data with previous emails and emails in the address book, it wouldn't be too hard to write.

    Is Hotmail's frontend written using ASP.NET?

    It's a .aspx, so I'm assuming yes.
