How to clear auto-saved email address?

By Virgoan ·
i just managed to get rid of msmail but then one problem for my user is that they keep using quick key or auto-saved email address from outlook xp when composing any outgoing mail. This has caused no email received by that particular recipient. Any idea where to clear its saved address from outlook? Thanks.

individual address books, you have to delete them from there.
then configure outlook to not autosave email addresses.

Do you mean the auto-complete feature in Outlook?

When you begin typing an address and the list box pops up, just highlight the offending email address and press delete. You must do this with each one you want to delete.
To locate the file in Windows XP, click Start, Search, select More advanced options, choose All files and folders in the 'Type of file' drop-down list, and check Search hidden files and folders. Type *.nk2 in the 'All or part of the file name' field, and click Search. At its site, Microsoft provides specific instructions for earlier versions of Windows (which require additional steps to find hidden files). Once you've located the file, either delete or rename it.
