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?

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.

As far as I know Outlook "Autocomplete" is replaced with "Recent People".

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.

That is the way Office works now

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.
