Edit AutoComplete Names in Outlook 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to edit the names the populate in the autocomplete list in Outlook 2016?  I know you can clear the list or delete individual entries but is there a way to edit the names?

  • Hi,

    You may try creating a contact for the autocomplete entries that you want to edit the names for, and then edit the Full name field to the name you want it to display when using autocomplete list. This worked in my environment (Outlook 365) when I tested it. You may also have a try with it. If that doesn't work, you may need to find some 3rd-party tool to achieve the goal.
