Autocomplete has not worked since I got my new computer a month or so ago. How do I fix it so the emails are stored for autocomplete?

I need the autocomplete or autofill to work when I'm putting an email address into a new email. It keeps the names for that session only but does not keep them once Outlook shuts down.

If you examine your Suggested Contacts Folder, do these addresses appear there?

Autocompletion is not a robust or reliable feature. It frequently stops working usually because Outlook loses its connection to its autocompletion cache. This can happen for a number of reasons, most often because Outlook is not exiting completely and thus not writing to the cache. Make sure you run no add-ins or sync software that might hold Outlook open after you exit. After you find and resolve the problem that is preventing Outlook from exiting properly, you may need to create a new Outlook profile to get autocompletion to work again.
