While editing a header field that contains mailing addresses, such as
CC:' and `
BCC:', you can complete a mailing
address by typing M-
mail-complete). It inserts
the full name corresponding to the address, if it can determine the full
name. The variable
mail-complete-style controls whether to insert
the full name, and what style to use, as in

For completion purposes, the valid mailing addresses are taken to be the local users' names plus your personal mail aliases. You can specify additional sources of valid addresses; use the customization buffer to see the options for this.
If you type M-

ispell-complete-word, as in Text mode.
