Microsoft Outlook Contacts List

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.41 GHz / 2047 MB
When I type the first letter of a "TO" (or CC or BCC) address in a newly created email, a list of contacts beginning with that letter pops up. On that list for the letter "T", there is an email address that I have never heard of and have no idea whose it is. When I try to find it in the Contacts List or the Address Book, either by manually looking or by using the search feature, it cannot be found. Since I can't find it, I can't delete it. Can you help? I'm using Outlook 2007, and the address that pops up is ''. Thanks, GHS.

Sounds like the address is in your autocomplete list.

The easiest way to get rid of it is to bring it up by starting
autocomplete (in your case type "yyy" into the TO field). Once the
list appears, highlight your autocomplete entry (with the arrow
keys) and simply hit the "delete" key. That will remove the
address from your autocomplete list.

Autocomplete lists in Outlook are stored in a file that ends in .nk2.
If you want to remove all of your autocompletes, you could find and
delete that file (just google it) but you would lose all of your
autocompletes, including items in your address book.

Thank you so very much. I was able to delete the unwanted address just like you said.
