Outlook 2016 auto complete not keeping global addresses...

After setting up new remote access server, I opened outlook, started new message (from both contacts & global address book), hit control + k, then closed message.
When starting a new message, auto complete works fine, but if I close outlook & reopen, only names from contacts will auto complete, global addressbook names are no longer available, unless I do the whole process over again.
How can I fix this?

make sure that the mailbox database is pointing to the default offline address book under client settings of each mailbox database.

what mode of Outlook you are using? Is it Online Mode or Cached Mode?

Offline, I believe, since none of the cached boxes are checked.

thats online mode. Online mode doesnt maintain chached entry of Email Address from GAL. you can test it on one system with chached mode and update us.

Switched to cached, added addresses & it works, until I quit out of outlook.
After opening outlook again, it's lost its addresses from global address book.

Click on Database properties  and go to Client Settings, if its blank, you need to browse and select Default address book . See the attached screen shot.
