    Check out FILE > Preferences > CONTACTS This should tell you if it is turned on or not.

    Does opening the Contact and saving it - make them return? Also try the normal - CTRL - SHIFT - F9 Run a Fixup on the names.nsf ie close notes... open a command prompt - change to the program directory and then type nfixup -i names.nsf then ncompact -c -i names.nsf then nupdall -r names.nsf This should clear any possible corruptions.

    I also have the same issue, recently after upgrading to 8.5.3 my resent contacts has stopped working. Things I have tried are listed below. 1. Deleted all recent contacts and started again. 2. Ran the below commands "nfixup -i names.nsf ncompact -c -i names.nsf nupdall -r names.nsf" Did this solution work for you Sabarirajan ? @Gabe9527 any ideas other than what you have already provided below ?

    The other thing to check is that your trash in the address book is empty.... if someone or thing is in your trash it will not add it to recent contacts again until the trash is cleared.

    There is something to check..... when you go File Preferences > does this look 8.5.x format or does it look like a CONTACT ? If this is the case recreate the address book ie new one - and copy your stuff across. This will sort it out.... If this is the case Delete the PERNAMES.ntf and get a copy from elsewhere. Restart client and rename the Notes.nsf to .old and what ever you called the last one names.nsf. See how this goes.

    I have encountered this problem on fresh installation of lotus notes version 8.5.2 fp2. Os platform Windows 7 and XP. If you copy and paste the recent contacts from old names.nsf to the fresh install copy of names.nsf it will gone sometime. 2nd steps so it will be gone, is to after your copy and paste of RECENT CONTACTS, send and email to new address then go back to your recent contact, everything there is now gone. So I don't think running fixup, updall, compact commands is an option on a fresh installation copy of lotus notes. Any Ideas, its been 3 days now , I am going nuts.

    I fixed this issue by adding PURGE_RECENT_CONTACTS=1 to the notes.ini

    Notes will purchse the recent contacts from all areas, then set it to zero, which means it will not purge again.
