Autocomplete is great for saving time entering email adrresses in the To, CC,

BCC fields. Sometimes email addresses disappear from the automplete list,

even ones I use very frequently. Is it a size limit issue? How can I increase

this so names don't "fall off" of my autocomplete list?

Thanks!

For Outlook 2003/2007, the value is hard-coded at 2,000.

Can you explain a little further please?
How is the 2,000 used?
Is there any 'ageing' of email addresses so that infrequently used ones are replaced by more frequently used ones?

First-in, first-out; it's a push-down list, as far as I know.

It's not an LRU (least recently used) list, as far as I know. Reusing an

address doesn't change its position in the list. No ageing is performed.
