Outlook 2007 won't save auto complete list (nk2 file) after reboot RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everytime I restart my computer my outlook 2007 Auto complete nick list ( *.nk2 file in /appdata/roaming/microsoft/outlook) get's wiped out!


    This is quite a hassle as I have a lot of emails I don't neccessarily maintain as contacts. 


    Has anyone else experienced this issue? 




    #1:  Use outlook 2007 and notice how the auto-complete feature works in the To: box when creating a new email to an address that isn't in your contacts list (but an email you've sent to before)

    #2:  Reboot

    #3:  Try sending an email again and notice if the auto-complete feature no longer works for the email that you used above.


    Remember, this address you are testing with is NOT in your contacts list but IS in your nick name list  (*.nk2) file.



    I currently am using the default Outlook.nk2 file, I will try creating a different one and seeing if that helps.
