I could restore from a backup but is there an easier way?  mail is hosted from office 365.

I was in a contact in outlook 2010, deleted an email address in the contact and saved the contact.

Then said oops!  Didn't want to do that.

Is there a way to get back that old record / restore the email address in the record?

I looked in deleted items and the old contact isn't there (should it be?  The old contact is deleted and a new one with the new info is saved?  Or it just revises the contact?

I tried looking on my phone but it must have already synced - the email address was gone there also : )

Not a big deal for this, but good to know how to recover from this.

If you just changed the contact, then no, it does not appear in Deleted Items. So you have to recover from your backup.

Usually ctrl-z will undo a change.. try it the next time.

I tried control z.. and that only works on the last thing you did. if you realize after typing something else you are SOL!?  

wow.  Interesting how as powerful / feature rich exchange is, if you delete something in a contact, not the contact itself, you are out of luck?

Yes. Editing the contact saves the new changes with nothing in Deleted Items.

As you have mentioned, you have backup available right now. You should try to retrieve from there. Control Z option only works for last changes made in.
