The addesses are coming from the nickname cache.

When an old on appears, use the arrow keys to highlight it, then hit delete.
The cache will then repopulate the next time you type in an email.

To delete the entire cache and start new, find the hidden .nk2 file in the local profile and delete it.

Greetings, meintsi !

Adding to waht meintsi said, sounds like your auto complete cache is corrupt.  You need to delete it with Outlook close and let Outlook recreate a new when it opens.

With Outlook close, 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!
