Outlook 2010 Cached names suggested contacts disappears

Have a client that every time he closes Outlook, all his cached names disappear. When he starts to type, nothing comes up. It will rebuild itself, or we can force it with a fake email and not send it, but if he closes Outlook 2010 and re-opens it, they are gone.

Have tried to setup a new profile, same problem. Have installed SP1, same problem. He is using suggested contacts and not an n2k file. Using an Exchange 2003 server.

There is an option that must be checked to use and populate Auto Complete. Has that been unchecked?

Is the user upgrading from Office 2003?

He may have upgraded from 2003 awhile back. He was one of the holdouts.

See if he still has an N2K file from his previous installation. You can try disabling cache mode, re-importing the file (you have to rename it "Outlook.NK2") using the /importnk2 outlook.exe switch. Once you can verify it has imported successfully, re-enable cache mode.
