This issue occurs because of changes to the nickname cache in Outlook 2010.
To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods, as appropriate for your situation.
Note Only follow these steps on client computers that are running Outlook 2010. Earlier versions of Microsoft Outlook do not store the nickname cache on the server.
Method 1: Decrease the number of allowed nicknames
Note We recommend that you use this method to resolve the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section.
To resolve this issue, decrease the maximum number of nicknames that can be stored in the nickname cache. To do this, follow these steps:
To resolve this issue, change how frequently Outlook 2010 clients synchronize nickname cache changes to the server that is running Exchange Server 2003. To do this, follow these steps:
To resolve this issue, you can disable the nickname cache feature by editing the registry or by changing the option in the Outlook user interface.
To disable the nickname cache featureby setting a registry value, follow these steps:
In Outlook 2010, a temporary copy of the nickname cache is stored in memory on the local computer. A permanent copy of the nickname cache is stored in the Associated Contents table of the Inbox. The nickname cache is stored in an IPM.Configuration.Autocomplete message class and subject. By default, the nickname cache is synchronized to the server every 10 minutes if changes are made to the local copy. For example, the nickname cache is synchronized if items are added to or deleted from the local copy of the nickname cache.
Typically, a mailbox stores approximately 1,000 nicknames. Therefore, an IPM.Configuration.Autocomplete message that is synchronized to the servers is between one megabyte (MB) and 1.5 MB. However, if many clients try to synchronize the nickname cache at 10 minute intervals, the issue that is described in the "Symptoms" section can occur.
