Greetings, craigdev !

Yes, there are two ways. 1) While in the To field, when you get the list of nicknames, highlight the name that you want to delete and hit the Delete key.

If you want to remove all the names, delete the nickname file, *.NK2.  NK2 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!
