outlook 2003 deleting remebered previous recipients

brad2000smith used Ask the Experts™
in outlook 2003 when sending a new email it remembers who you have previously sent email too.  so for example if i have sent an email to bradsmith@example.com, i would just have to type "br" and it would give me a prompt on that email so that i dont have to type it again.  how can i delete these certain names  that are remembered individually, or turn the feature off?

yes - delete key

"You can delete the entire file by searching your HD for *.N2K files.  If you delete this file - quite outlook before you delete it & then start it back up after you delete this file.

Or if there is just a few, when you start typing & that bad e-mail comes shows up along with the good one, just arrow down - highlight the bad one & hit the delete key.  "
