Outlook - Automatically added addresses

by mt232fd / July 8, 2010 12:29 AM PDT

How can I remove automatically added addresses in outlook? What I'm concerned with is every email addressed I've ever email, remains in the list. So when I begin to type my wifes name, her current and former email addresses pop-up, (I never added them to the address book). How can I get rid of the older or incorrect addresses?

Once you know it, it's intuitive: down-arrow and delete-key.

Are these saved in a file somewhere so I could delete many at once? Or more importantly, impress my boss by helping her do it?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
