Currently address autocomplete produces a popup offering known email address
only when the tab key is pressed.  Apart from not being easily discoverable,
this is confusing and clunky in a GUI (although I love it on the command

Ideally the popup would appear automatically (optionally?) when characters (a
certain number, or after a certain delay?) are typed.

It would also be helpful for the first found address to be filled in without
having to select from the dropdown list.  Non-typed portions of the address
would be already selected so that they don't interfere with further typing.

Since this has to be one of the most used functions in an email client, even
small improvments are valuable.
