Outlook Autocomplete (Recipients) opens upward

So we have a user that all of a sudden his Outlook 2019 recipient autocomplete opens to the top of his new/reply/forward message window. This happens whether or not the window is at the top, bottom or maximized on his screen. I realize normal behavior should be to open to the top when the new message window is low on the screen and open to the bottom otherwise, but the position of his window on the screen does not seem to change the behavior. Here is a screenshot, the new message window is maximized so the list of names disappears off the top of the viewable area.

Thanks in advance for your help!

It's a bug in the current version of office 365 / 2019 / 2016 - I was able to repro it when I set this key - but a couple of users said they were not using the key. Micorsoft is aware.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Options
DWORD: DisableAutoCompleteUpdate
Value: 1
