Outlook 2010 Autocomplete Contacts no longer working
Posted 10 October 2011 - 12:05 PM
I have a weird issue on a few clients, including my own system, where the auto-complete contacts no longer save after closing Outlook 2010.
As a workaround, I have been creating an email to every contact in my list then pressing CTRL-K to save it. This does not save after closing it.
Since I have seen a bunch of random fixes for this, I will tell you what I have already tried:
Recreation of Email Profile
Reinstall of Outlook 2010
Deletion of all Outlook 2010 info in C:\Users\csanderson\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache
Deletion of ALL Outlook 2010 AppData
Trying to import all the contacts into the AutoComplete.dat file using NK2View, this refuses to work at all.
Any info on this would be much appreciated. Thanks!

IMHO, it should be solved by recreating the windows user profile but when you read this, it could be coming from a corrupted mailbox (if using an exchange server).

Actually auto-complete is only kinda working now. It will populate from the Global Address List after a few seconds, but it is not saving outside contacts like it did OOB.
Guess its on to uninstall/reinstall of Office
This issue is just bizarre to me...

BUT the fix is clearing the auto-complete cache, or manually deleting it as sometimes clearing it didn't work.
The file path is %AppData%\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\Stream_Autocomplete.dat
Not too big of a concern for me, but the users threw a fit, but eventually I got them on board.
Cached Exchange Mode toggle did not work, by the way.
