Make it possible to turn off autocomplete in Outlook 2016 for Mac
I am a lawyer. I cannot afford to accidentally send an email to the wrong person, which is all too easy to do when Outlook autocompletes email addresses. This is a serious business and ethical issue. You need to permit users to turn this feature off; otherwise you have created an email program that is inherently insecure. Frankly, I don't know what idiot thought it was a good idea to make this feature untouchable as it has implications for other businesses and government as well. Really. This is stupid and needs to be fixed.
I have just sent an email to the wrong person. Obviously it's my fault and I need to be more careful, but the autocomplete for recipients really should be turn-off-able.
I have equally been infuriated by the autocomplete option of "Yours truly". As I have frequently reminded Microsoft, this is not a term used amongst English (rather than Americans). I have successfully removed it in the past by getting Microsoft to provide a revised Normal template for Word but this has now been overwritten by an update. Very irritating. More broadly, autocomplete can be dangerous in other areas and I have at least once sent an email to the wrong address because of it.
Make it possible to truly turn off autocomplete. I have turned off autocorrect, autocomplete, grammar checking etc, yet in the current version, if I close a letter, with
it will ALWAYS autochange "Yours" to "Yours truly," as soon as I hit return on that line. I don't want it to do that!
