OK, I may have missed part of this thread but I have just one question.
Is this problem specific to NVDA or does it occur also with Jaws?
Why the hell did they do it that way? Here is a simpler fix that Microsoft gave me. it is working fine. follow the below instructions.

This will role you back to the April version.

2 or 3 days ago, the autofill function in outlook 2016 stopped working on my win10 pc with nvda.
This afternoon, I called the micro soft disability help desk; and the case worker said it was a known problem that is being worked on.
We used the quick assist feature of win10 and the problem is currently resolved with a rollback of office I think.. It took more than an hour and “regedit” was used.
May your autofill be just right.
