I use Outlook for mail all the time.
I have a list of contacts set up in Outlook.
However, when I start type a name in the "To" field, it comes up with a
little shortcut box (lots of names when I type one letter and it narrows
it as I type more). Many of these names (which have e-mail addresses
associated with them) or straight e-mail addresses are NOT in my
contacts, although they look like names of people who have sent me
things at some point over the years. I don't have any other address
book associated with Outlook that I can see.
The problem I run into is there are a lot of old addresses for people in
this "shortcut menu" as well as lots of names I have exchanged with in
the past. I want to get rid of some of the entries in this list.
I can't seem to find where I can edit or reset this address-suggestion drop down box!
I would appreciate any help you can give. The only thing I have found is: Tools->Options->E-mail Options->Advanced Email Options has a check box "Suggest names while completing To, Cc, and Bcc fields."
