09 Jun

not as previous version, outlook 2010 do not use nk2 for autocomplete cache. Now the cache is in the folder of C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache

autocomplete files are looks like Stream_Autocomplete_xxxxxxx.dat.

 

but simple delete these file will not clear the cache from outlook. the next time you open outlook, these files will be recreated.

solution:

1-

  • open Outlook 2010 Options.
  • Click the Mail tab.
  • Under Send Messages, click Empty Auto-Complete List.

    2-

    close outlook

    win+r run Outlook.exe /CleanAutoCompleteCache

    suggest you run it under the folder path of outlook.exe
