Outlook 2010 AutoComplete List "Forgets" after 1 day

Help! I'm quite lost as to the potential cause of this issue. It has been going on for weeks, and I've tried several different solutions, all to no avail, Including Emptying the Auto-Complete list, then verifying that AutoComplete does work. Trouble is, it only seems to work for a few hours to a day, then it stops again. All of this DESPITE the fact that the Suggested Contacts Folder is FULL of items! I have verified that despite the presence of an item in Suggested Contacts, it will NOT Auto-Complete/Suggest that name when typing in the To: Box of a new email message.

I've also tried SCANPST on his OST file (Yes this is Exchange 2010) with only minor inconsistencies found, and I have also tried DELETING his ENTIRE Outlook profile, and building a new one, re-synching with his Exchange mailbox, ALL to no avail!

Any other suggestions appreciated and desperately needed. Only thing I can think of now is to uninstall/reinstall/Office/Outlook 2010.

Thanks in advance!
