Outlook 2003 auto complete feature

I have a user with a new laptop that selectively remembers the email addresses of people that he sends emails to. I have deleted the nk file already and Outlook has all the service packs. It's like its only remembers a certain amount of names and only certain ones. has anyone run into this problem?

it has all the service packs on it too. and i did a repair.

Greetings, LAzuberi !

Deleting the NK2 file should fix the problem. The file is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

If no joy, 1. Reset the Outlook toolbar template. With Outlook close, do a search for and rename outcmd.dat file. Restart Outlook and a fresh outcmd.dat file will be recreated.

2. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL

3. Disable Outlook Addins.  With Outlook close, do a search for and rename extend.dat file.

4. Start Outlook in Safe Mode.  Go to Start > Run and type

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Outlook.exe" /safe

Your path to Outlook.exe may be a little different.

5. Create a new Outlook profile.

6. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

7. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.
