Outlook not updating

On the next page fill the text boxes as shown in the below screenshot.

The cause is the same with the Auto Complete/Auto Suggest getting empty in previous versions of Outlook; an add-in preventing Outlook from shutting down properly or even crashing it.

An example of an add-in which has caused a lot of issues is the “Outlook Change Notifier”. Note that this is just an example; other add-ins can cause the same issues as well.

Outlook Anywhere is a feature by which you can access your company emails using Outlook outside the LAN. Outlook Anywhere is also known in other terms like RPC over HTTP, Remote Exchange etc.

This feature is available in Exchange version 2003 and later.

Set up IMAP and change your SMTP settings to read Gmail messages in other mail clients, like Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail.

When you use IMAP, you can read your Gmail messages on multiple devices, and messages are synced in real time. Note: To avoid locking yourself out of your account, make sure you don't exceed 2500 MB per day for IMAP downloads and 500 MB per day for IMAP uploads.

As a result, Outlook writes a corrupted Auto Complete list when shutting down and cannot be loaded anymore when you start Outlook the next time.

While this solution discusses the Outlook Change Notifier add-in, other add-ins could cause the same issues and therefor the solution discussed here can be applied to other add-ins as well.
