have the ability to disable autocomplete feature for email as it's remembering emails for all emails received even junk mail, don't need it.
Have the option to remove auto complete for emails. It's remembering all email addresses of emails received and sent and no need to have junk mail remembered! It's also duplicating email addresses and creating new contact cards even though the contact's email is in their card.

Some of my clients (and many on the web forums) find the AutoComplete feature on the Mac Outlook client annoying. Why can't Microsoft simply add the tick box to disable the feature in options? Please?
As mentioned, the autocomplete needs to be smarter - for example do not offer emails that were sent/received in account1 for emails being composed as from account2
The auto-remember for the "junk mail" is really annoying. Hopefully this will be resolved shortly. It is a main reason for NOT recommending the product to others.

Introduces a serious risk of data loss

Echoing this, it can be done on Office 2016 for Windows but Autocomplete disablement is not there on Mac. The continually causes serious business risk for data leakage for individuals who email different users with the same name, especially when Outlook is configured with multiple email accounts. This is a non-negotiable feature this application must have!
We've disabled this via GPO for Windows users... Too bad Office Mac doesn't have parity in being able to disable this...

I have a slightly different problem... only some remembered emails are a problem. Specifically, github will send out emails with a person's real name (ie: Bob Smith) that are no-reply emails. Outlook then decides that's the email that it should be using when I want to send an email to Bob, and my email ends up going to github (which just deletes it).
So what I need is for the auto-remember feature to either be smarter about what it remembers, or at the very least, the ability to mark a particular email address as "never try to use this email address".

I send out a lot of one-time emails, and now my recents is cluttered with these things. I would like a way to not even save them.
