We’re all familiar with that helpful dropdown in Outlook when going to type an email address…it suggests names that we’ve emailed before, making it quick and convenient to add the user.
But, because people will occasionally accidently select the wrong recipient (usually when in a rush) some companies have resorted to turning off autocomplete altogether, slowing productivity in Outlook.
But now you can…
Prevent mistakes and ensure accuracy by automatically cleaning out your autofill cache and purging stored addresses.
This add-in will automatically remove people (optionally only those that are external to your organization) from your autocomplete cache once a day (or once a week, or whatever schedule works best for you including immediately with an on-demand Clean Now button). When done, your To field autocomplete selections will be limited to just those people in your company.
This Outlook feature is known by several names – autocomplete or autofill, and it used to be known as the nickname cache (complete with an NK2 file!) but regardless of which name you use, you know that unauthorized disclosures in emails occur every day. But you can help stop them by having your autocomplete list cleaned out on a regular basis.
