I once mistyped someone's email address, and now whenever I begin to type their (correct) email address, Outlook always sugests both the incorrect and correct versions.  I'd really like to get rid of the incorrect version because I sometimes accidentally pick it.

Thanks, that resets the whole list, but it helped me find http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=289975
which says how to delete individual names, it is ridiculously easy, and I ashamed I didn't think of it.  Begin by typing the name in the To box of a message and then, when the AutoComplete list appears, press the DOWN ARROW key to select the address of the deleted contact and press the DELETE key to remove the entry from cache.
