I'm going to write "never do this." Why?

For your autocomplete to work, you would have to send over the list of email addresses to the user and that's a problem. Your site would them LEAK USER EMAIL ADDRESSES.

That won't be a good thing. For this round, let the browser do its thing on autocomplete.

You can complete this task with typeahead.js library.

Bootstrap Typeahead

<input id="email_search" type="text" name="email_search" value="">

    ajax: '/search_database_for_email.php'
    displayField: 'email',
    valueField: 'id',
    onSelect: function(item) {
    //This is used to populate a hidden field with the email id if returned.

On the backend, do a query to the database using a LIKE statement.

`SELECT * FROM email_list WHERE email LIKE %{filter_var($_POST["query"],FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING)}%`

Send your query results back as JSON object.
