The problem is: ‘ (Comma) is adding automatically in front and end of email ID after he sent and cannot deliver to me.

 

For Example: when typing address as: syed.khalid@inani.biz but after sent the address shown as ‘Syed.khalid@inani.biz’ and not delivered.  

This only happens when sending email to this address.  Usually I receive all his other email when he replies to all and the mail not prepared as new message in his laptop.

please advice
thanks

Just delete from your quick lookups. When your typing the address and it pops up as a quickfind, click the cross to delete it so it forgets the bad address

Its not so much a qucik-lookup thats causing the problem

What you are describing above is whats called Auto Complete

Depending on your version of Outlook your auto complete cache may be soted in an AutoComplete .NK2 File if using Office/Outlook 2007 or earlier

In Office/Outlook 2010 they did away with the Auto Complete .NK2 file and now uses a dat file called Stream_Autocomplete

This is located in:

%appdata%\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache  and will be the file labeled Stream_Autocomplete_<GUID>.dat.


Now for your sepecific issue above.
By far the easiest way is to delete the single instance as others have described above


Now if your not concerned about retaining all of your auto complete email addresses

You could, simply clear the whole auto complete in 2007 and earlier by deleting the NK2 file in:


%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook

•Delete/Rename the Outlook.NK2 file that you find in this folder.

Of you could do the same in 2010 by using the location provided above, or you can clear the list in Outlook itself in using File>Options
