    Greetings, bladeeta21 !

    You need to delete the autocomplete feature.  Go to Tools > Options > Preferences tab > E-mail Options > Advance Email Options > Unselect "Suggest names while completing To..."  Click OK.

    You may want to delete the nickname file, NK2. Search for *.NK2 and rename the file.  .NK2 file is located in
    C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.

    It is a hidden file. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  Click OK.

    Best wishes!
