I have old and broken email addresses that keep populating the drop-down fields when I start typing in the TO field.  I've read many articles for help, but none of them work for me.  Mostly the suggestions are to start typing, then up/down arrow to the entry I want to delete, then hit delete, or shift-delete, or ctrl-delete, or ctrl-shift-delete, or to click on the entry first and then hit any of those key options.  None of them have any effect.  I can't find the strings in regedit either.

I've also hit the options:

But no place to find a particular entry and delete it.  I don't want to wipe all my entries, just the ones that are broken.

Thanks for any help-
