    I feel like an idiot even for asking this, but I've consulted the Google and used the forum search. In any case, this should be so obvious I don't understand how I've spent 20 minutes screwing around on the phone and have not figured it out.

    Anywho, I want to go into Gmail, compose a new email, and be able to select contacts (or even have the app provide a look-ahead list based on what I type). This is exactly how the Gmail app for my Blackberry 8830 worked so I don't understand why there seems to be less functionality no an Android phone. In any case, it seems that no matter what, all I can do is manually type in email addresses.

    Also, I know I can go into Contacts (People) and select a person's email. This brings up a menu option to email using Gmail or my Exchange email account. This in't good enough because all I can do is open a new email to one person this way. What if I want to email 10 people!?

    Anyway, the phone must be able to do this. I must be blind. Please enlighten me as to what I'm missing.

    Start typing the recipient's first name in the to box. When you pick up your finger or type space a list of names will show, select the name and keep doing that until you have all the names you want in the to list.
