How to copy or export the autocomplete file/list in Outlook?

As we know, Outlook will save the autocomplete cache automatically, and then list the autocomplete cache when you type related letters in the To/Cc/Bcc field in email as below screenshot shown. Have you ever thought of copying or exporting the autocomplete list file from Outlook? This article will introduce a method for you!

Copy or export the autocomplete file/list in Outlook

Easily export senders and recipients from emails and add as contact group members in Outlook

Normally, we can copy a sender or a recipient from an email, and then add it as a contact group member with Add Members > From Address Book, and it seems no way to add multiple emails' multiple senders or recipients into a contact group in bulk. But, with the excellent Add to Groups feature of Kutools for Outlook, you can easily add multiple emails' senders or recipients into contacts groups in Outlook with several clicks only.
