Have there been any changes made? The "autofill" is pulled from an .NK2 file in the users profile username.NK2

Might I suggest deleting the Address list and reimporting them? Is that a possibility?

Unless you can pull an older copy of the users NK2 file from a backup, I don't. Of Course you can give them the option of typing 3 or 4 letters of the recipients last name and using the ALT + K shortcut. Once they have been used once they should show up in the "autofill" function.

Use NK2Edit and edit the NKS file. then save it over top of the current one to make sure any corruption is overwritten. You can use this utility to add in addresses from his address book or manually as well to correct the problem.

My guess is the NK2 file became corrupt.
