Outlook Name Suggestion Issue

I am working on a strange issue with name suggestion in Outlook 2k3 version. 
For some users when I type the alias for the first time it resolved the name. 
The next time I try to type few characters for the same user. it suggests me 
with the complete name but this time in the brackets <> the alias would be 
some starnge name with some numbers. This strange alias number does not 
existing in our organization nor the number that appears along with it 
appears in the User AD properties.
Examples: 
First time I type the alias as:
"nnair" and press Ctrl + K =  It resolves to Nair, Nitin.

Second time I type:
"n" Outlook suggests me as:
n Nair, Nitin<mpannel53233334>.

Here Alias of Nair, Nitin is "nnair" which does not appear and the numbers 
that appear does not have any entry in this users AD account. Now if we 
select this user and send email, it working fine. The only concern is where 
is it picking up this starnge name and number?

This is happening for some user and not all. On the client machine we tried 
deleting the .NK2 file but next time once this users name is typed, then 
second time it gives the same issue. We have seen this happening with 3-4 
user id's for now. All users are on different servers and different stores. 

Another issue Example:
First time I type the alias as:
"kRamesh" and press Ctrl + K =  It resolves to Kumar, Ramesh.

Second time I type:
"k" Outlook suggests me as:
k Kumar, Ramesh<KRamesh2342343>.

Here Alias of Kumar, Ramesh is "KRamesh". It appears correctly but again a 
number comes up. Here also if we select the user and send mail, it gets 
delivered fine, but the same question where is the number coming from?

Any suggestion for issue is highly appreciated.

Regards
Nitin

corrupted word-outlook interface or preferences
Without any warning, some preferences for Word 2003 when I use it as the email editor for Outlook got goofy today. When I'm in edit mode (creating a new email or replying to an old one), the fonts look bolder and larger than they should. When I send the email, they look fine when received. The fonts all look okay when I stop using Word as my email editor. I thought that maybe a Word preference got corrupted. I've tried deleting the Normal.dot file (for Word, since it seems that Word is at least part of the problem) and also doing the "detect and repair" option, but I&#...
