    Outlook 2016 How to clear old names when enterinh email address


    Hi there

    Is there a Cache or some command that can clear the memory or wherever Outlook stores the email addresses (NOT THE ADDRESS BOOK OR CONTACTS !!!).

    For example if you have send an email to say dogsdinners@anywhere.com and later you want to send an email to donaldduck@disbey.com after you've typed in the ist 2 letters you get some of the other entries starting with do including the one you want to get rid of.

    Note these are NOT the ones stored in contacts or address book. I can't find any setting to remove / clear these.

    Cheers

    You can just click on the "X" when they appear.

    I (failed to) send a message to "zzz@zzzz.zzz" and it was added to the auto-complete list (not contacts). You can delete this address by clicking on the X when it appears composing a new message.

    Is that what you mean?

    There are instructions for copying the auto-complete list here Import or copy the Auto-Complete List to another computer - Outlook but I don't know about editing it.
