Outlook "name suggest" displays wrong email address

Outlook Exchange/Outlook 2002, with "Suggest names while completing To, Cc, and Bcc fields" enabled, upon typing the contact name into a new message To field, the name that Outlook suggests and displays still contains my personal Contact's old email address in parentheses.  Even after I manually select the contact from my Contact folder and send an email to the contact Outlook will still suggest the contact with the suggestion containing the old email address.

I noticed there are other issues with name suggest too, where for example, I'll email a certain contact repeatedly and the particular name I type in will never get suggested.  This will happen even if the contact name in my contact folder is unique.

I've tried disabling then reenabling the suggest name option but still doesn't refresh the suggest name cache.

Anyone know anything about the Outlook suggest name cache?

Additionally, you can just trash the old nickname file and start with a new one by closing Outlook, searching for:
<outlook profile name>.NK2

Rename the file and restart Outlook, then it will begin to create a new "auto-complete" list.  By default Outlook caches the last 1000 unique addresses that are used in outgoing messages.

The NK2 file is what I was particularly interested in but the link helped a lot too.  Thank you! :o)>
