Greetings, aruphelp !

The list is compose of Contacts list and typed in email addresses.  You cannot delete the Contacts list, but you can delete the typed in email addresses.  Do a search for and rename *.NK2 file.  The names are kept in a NK2 file.  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!
