Hi All
        we use MS exchange to email server, in user's outlook, we have enabled Autocomplete Email Addresses, in NK2 file, we can find 2 kinds of email address, one is exchange, it is our internal email address , one is SMTP, it is external email address, can we ask outlook cache Exchange email address only?

You can only turn autocomplete on or off.
If I understand correctly you want your internal Exchange addresses to be autocompleted. if you start typing an address Outlook also starts to look in Exchange for the address. so Outlook automaticly looks in your Exchange addresslist.

You can delete the autocomplete file  and create a new one with only exchange/internal email addresses. But still if you send an email to an external user that email will get added to autocomplete list

Start > run > type 'regedit'

Go here
Key: HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Preferences
Value name: ShowAutoSug
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 1 = Enabled (default), 0 = Disabled

Edit the value and change it 0

Restart the computer.

Check if this fixes. If this fix works. create a .reg file and configure in startup script of Domain policy.

Note: this is the location of autocomplete in Outlook2003
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Preferences\AutoNameCheck
