I found (and tried) the answer and it worked (I'm on Firefox)...DO this:
In Hotmail go to OPTIONS & Under 'Customizing Hotmail' title, Click Advanced Privacy Options, and under AUTO-COMPLETE Options there's the following:
1. Only suggest people in my contact list is what you want Ticked, then click Save and send an email and notice it no longer is there.

If its browser based, remove it through the auto complete under internet options. If it is hotmail based, have you tried clearing the cookies.

"browser-based" or "hotmail-based" .....
I have absolutely no clue !!
It's a ordinary Hotmail account

(would have thought it would always be "browser-based")

What was meant by browser based vs. Hotmail based was:

Where are the names stored...in your browser cache/history or something related to the Hotmail website itself.

I don't have an answer...I just think I understand what mikelinus meant.

I believe that in Outlook you can delete a name from the suggested list just by highlighting it and pressing the delete key. Maybe that works with Hotmail too.

Don't they have an FAQ or better still, an email address for user support?

Sorry, my language was confusing. I was unsure as to whether your browser was auto completing, or if it was actually a Hotmail based auto complete( in this case you answered the question, and found the correct answer, sorry it was vague)
