Exclamation In Outlook 2003 auto complete won't work

I have Outlook 2003 and it won't auto complete names in the "TO" field (or cc or bcc)
I looked in Options and both "automatic name checking" and "suggest names while completing to, cc and bcc" are checked.

I closed down outlook and checked task manager to make sure it wasn't still running

I went to the .nk2 file name and changed it to profilename.bak.

Auto completion starts to work but when I restart my computer and reopen Outlook, it won't work again and starts "learning" the names all over again. Once I type a name in, it will know it again until I shut my computer down, then I have to start all over again again!

I do work in a company and we work through a server.
Is there any help for my forgetful computer?


Thanks, Meenie

Meenie,

Try deleting the NK2 file, and not renaming it.

By default a new NK2 file "should" be created.

Hope this fixes it for you.

Thanks Masta7Mail.. my IT guy finally came and fixed it and that's just what he did (I've been asking them to look at it for MONTHS!)
