Outlook Predictive address deletion

Posted on 2005-03-30

Greetings,  recently my company spun us off and all our email addresses changed.  An annoying problem when using Outlook to create a new email is that it "predicts" the address of the person as I am typing it in.  Because of the spin off this is incorrect
99% of the time and it seems to never remember the new address.  I don't want to shut off this feature but I want to delete the file that has all this information on old addresses and start over.  Someone suggested I delete the "*.fav" file which I did but it didn't make and differnce.  Any help would be appriated.
