I have recently used nirnk2 edit to build up the automcomplete87865XXXXXX.dat with the clients contacts via export contacts to csv file. All very good , the client is now complaining that old incoming address's, that are not contacts, are not being offered, he has to go trawl through the incoming and copy and paste. Is there a clever way to "import" all arrived email addresses into the autocompleteXXXXXXXX.dat file.

Not directly, you would probably need to extract all the sender addresses via script to follow the same process as you did for the contacts.

Powershell or an Outlook VBA would be able to get the addresses.

Some info here;

Think i have an Outlook VBA in the office that might be modified to do it.

Realise it's not always possible but I'd be inclined to explain to the client that this is not a feature of Outlook though to be honest!

I agree, he believes that before the machine was rebuilt (hard drive failure) that outlook did do this for him. I guess that as he emails the autocomplete will build up over time ??

Yes exactly, it will remember addresses that you send to rather than gathering up ones you receive from (which for one thing will save it remembering received spam for example)

managed to persuade customer to wait whilst the auto complete builds itself
