I have a Windows 7 (32bit) computer running Outlook 2010, with an exchange account. It is currently not retaining the autocomplete cache for email addresses. Outlook will cache the email addresses for the session that is open, but
as soon as you close the session the cached addresses are lost.
In previous versions of Outlook the NK2 file held this data. As I understand the NK2 file has been replaced by stream_autocomplete*.dat located in the following directory:
The problem: The "stream_autocomplete*.dat" file is missing from the directory listed above. I have scanned the machine with a file search and it is nowhere to be found. I have hopelessly tried to (auto)generate the file but am
shooting in the dark.
Is there any method for forcing Outlook to create this needed file? Or are there any other suggestions as to what might resolve this issue?
