Hello All,

After long searching the web to find a solution, I am here to ask. In previous versions of Outlook, to change the maximum number of AutoComplete items allowed in Outlook 2010 was editing the key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\AutoNameCheck]

"MaxNicknames"=dword:000003e8

For some reason, that same key (AutoNameCheck) isn't located in the *\15.0\Outlook\ location! Has this been changed, or just completely removed from the registry. I have done a complete search and found nothing.

An end user has 1000 and it seems to completely disable his ability to use the AutoComplete function.

Any help would be great.

Thanks!

So should I export that item from a 2010 install, edit it, and import it to the registry?

The reason I ask is it is installed on a Citrix terminal server and I wouldn't want to mess with the accounts that are working.

Yes, you will need to change the 14 to 15 for Outlook 2013, before importing the registry file. (Open it in notepad).
