    Outlook 2010 - Lost Autocomplete Addresses?


    I have several IMAP accounts setup in Outlook 2010. Autocomplete for frequently used email addresses on creating a new message has been working fine. Two days ago, I set up a new Outlook email account using the new account wizard. This successfully configured a new Microsoft Exchange account in addition to the existing IMAP accounts. However, the autocomplete function has lost the previous store of email addresses and has started learning them all over again.

    It seems the autocomplete data is stored in \AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache. I've listed my files below but I can't work out how to force Outlook to use the autocomplete file it was previously using. How do I fix this? Note there are three autocomplete files but Outlook is currently using the small recent file instead of the older larger file which presumably contains the data I need.

    windows 10 mail app- How to delete the auto fill address

    There appears to be some confusion between the original post about deleting Autofill/Autocomplete addresses for Windows 10 Mail, and not the various versions of Outlook.

    There are paid versions of Outlook, such as Outlook 2010, and the free online version of Outlook.com (originally Hotmail.com) .

    When working within Windows 10 Mail (not Outlook), and placing the pointer over the address to be deleted, there is no "X" that appears, therefore no means to delete the unwanted Autofill email address.

  3. Windows Mobile Device Center does not recognize office outlook 2010

    With My upgrading to outlook 2010, all contacts and outlook mail on my windows mobile were lost. While synchronizing it showed outlook not installed.



    I have office 2010 64 bit installed... but it seems there is no compatibility between the two?



    Any help...

    Outlook 2010 - Lost Autocomplete Addresses?

    I found a simple way of fixing this:

    • Open Outlook
    • Go to File / Options / Mail / Send Messages and select the option "Use Auto-Compelte List ..."
    • Close Outlook.
    • The autocomplete data is stored in folder C:\Users\My Account\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache. Rename RoamCache so you have a backup in case something goes wrong.
    • Start Outlook which will then create a new copy of RoamCache.
    • Create a new email and add your frequent email addresses to the new email from your address book(s). Set the delivery delay to a future date and send.
    • Wait until you see the file starting "Stream_Autocomplete..." in the RoamCache folder has been rebuilt - check the time and keep pressing F5 until the time doesn't change.
    • Close & restart Outlook. Create a new email and check to see that autocomplete now works with your common addresses.
    • Find the test message you created in your Outbox and delete the message so the message isn't sent.
