In browser, or in your email’s “TO” field – autocomplete is a handy feature, but very transient.

Outlook’s Autocomplete.

In Outlook especially, you should create and save contacts for things you want to keep. When you save or create a CONTACT, that data is easily backed up and migrates with you. When you rely on autocomplete, that list may become full and push other entries off, ┬áit doesn’t migrate with you without setup and if it becomes corrupt, must be rebuilt. That means downtime.

Instead, use a data management solution for web browsing, and not rely on saving passwords to your browser, because if the system must be cleaned, or you change computers, that data will not move with you in most circumstances and must be rebuilt.
