Outlook Autocomplete

In the past in outlook when you started typing someones name you would see the autocomplete, now you see a "recent people" which is quite honestly awful - We have tried and tried to turn it off and revert back to autocomplete as well as raising a call with MS, has anyone seen this before?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's the new roll out from Microsoft.

It still uses the autocomplete so it should display the other address as well.

It only shows a couple of people and not all the ones it previously did, it also doesn't sgow groups that you have e-mailed previously!

Any ideas how to put groups back in? that is the bigger issue.

It has changed (as noted above). In a new email, type A  or C  and the complete list of A... 's or C...'s should come up.

If not, delete Autocomplete (Empty Autocomplete in Outlook, Options, Mail section. Then let autocomplete rebuild.

Tested with a new machine - it still only shows "recent people" and not "recent groups" or any distribution groups you've emailed.

Are you using Office 365 subscription?

If yes, ask your office 365 admin to rollback the update.

We are using volume licence of Office 2016 and do not see such problem.
