Force Entourage to Forget old wrong Email Addresses

I have some email addresses that I have sent emails, that are NOT in my entourage address book, or contact area. These email addresses have changed, but entourage still remembers the old ones, and every time I start to type in a email address, entourage fills it in with the wrong address....

How do I make entourage forget some of these addresses ???

Hey -- a question I can actually answer.

Under Preferences, choose Mail & News -> Compose.

Uncheck the "Recent Addresses" checkbox.

That's all there is to it.

But maybe Paul only wants to have Entourage forget about certain emails.  I don't know where they would be stored though.  

What have you tried that hasn't worked?

Or maybe wisimon solved your problem already =D

Check out this web site: http://www.entourage.mvps.org/ they might have a better answer.  But I agree with Bill Simon in his earlier post and he is correct.

I see this issue is closed but I just found it and have the same problem.  Turning off, or clearing the recent address list does not help.  Even though addresses are changed on the server the old ones continue to appear with the new ones.  I'm getting a stack of old addresses and can't figure out how to clear them.  Obviously these old addresses are being stored somewhere, anyone know where and how to get rid of them?

Ask your own question please. Link to this one if you want but do not use someone's else questions to ask your own. - it is considered a misuse of the points system. Thanks for the understanding :)
