All of autocomplete complete or just the ability to save contact groups to it? I know groups is a known issue. Did you set any registry keys before it broke? I know that using the legacy gal key with some builds broke autocomplete (but that key worked with 1710 here) , other keys could have an effect.

I wasn't even aware contact groups could be saved to autocomplete. All I know is it used to suggest emails as I typed and it doesn't anymore. I don't recall setting any registry keys recently..

did you make any changes to your profile around the time it broke?

contact groups could be saved to autocomplete
Saved might be the best word to use - but contact groups (formerly known as distribution lists) should be in the list, same as contacts or other recipients.

Is there any way to bring back the old autocomplete list instead of recent people? All my contacts are saved with display as "Company Full Name (e-mail address). Now when I enter a company it only shows 5 results, whereas there are more than 5 contacts with the same company...it is incredibly annoying.
