I need to delete a nk2 entry on a number of user accounts, I would rather not go on each machine and delete it manually. What would be the easiest way to do this?

Do you need to delete an email address out of the Nk2 file or do you need to delete the whole file?

Hrm... on a single machine if you type in a letter in outlook and the name pops up, you can highlight it and hit delete on the keyboard which will remove it from one machine... I don't know if there is a way to do it across many machines...

Yeah, thats what I would like to do because I will have to it on multiple machine over the next few days. I didn't want to have to do on an individuall basis.
