Everytime i want to create a New email message, when I start typing the e-mail address it automatically suggests some email addresses of previous contacts that i have sent mails.  I do not have any contacts under "CONTACTS"  , but somehow and somewhere outlook stores this addresses to be used later.

This is quite useful BUT i need to erase or Edit some addresses that are not working anymore or that are wrong.  I went to the CONTACTS tab, and as i mentioned, there is nothing there..

WHERE are this contacts stored??   How can i Edit them or Erase them?

I will appreciate your help , I know is not a Big problem, and has  a simple solution,  but it is an irritating issue tough and has caused me a couple of problems when i sent a email and it never arrived because of the wrong email address stored under my clients name... I have tried myself to work this out with no results..  

Actually I now managed to EDIT the email info when i Double click the contact name, but there is no way to delete it...   I have attached a Screen Capture
