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.

    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

    "Yours

    (myname)"

    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!
