Regarding Outlook emails

By patty ·
Outlook apparently stores email addresses that I have used in the past but never saved to the contacts list. How do I get these out of the outlook memory? Some are wrong addresses, or they are old or dated. I still want Outlook to suggest names in memory but i need to get rid of these old ones that are NOT in the contact list.

Use the following steps to reset the Outlook 2002 nickname cache for both Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Quit Outlook 2002.
Open C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
Search for File with extension *.NK2.
Right-click the .NK2 file with the name of the profile that you want to reset, and then click Rename.
Rename the file to <profile_name.bak>
Log Off / Log In and Restart Outlook 2002.
Outlook 2002 will generate a new nickname cache.
