How to Clear Autofill for new contacts on Mac Outlook 2011?

When adding a new contact in Outlook 2011, information is automatically filled in. This is a potential source of error.

How can this cache of contact info be flushed, or turned off?


Thanks.

For the Mac it's a bit different than Windows.  You may want to look at this blog on what they did to clear it out by deleting the cache file.

When you say adding a new contact do you mean a new message "To:" field if so, then you can use the up and down keyboard keys to select it and then press the delete key

the file that saves that information is a .nk2 file. I am not sure where it is located on a Mac. If you can find that file on your mac you can delete it and that will clear out the saved autocomplete contacts. you can also start typing a name in the to: field highlight what pops up right click and delete, which you can do for everyone in the list. hope this helps a bit.
