Either edit the address to correct it, or remove the user... and start "clean".

The errant email address does not appear in my Hotmail contact list. It only appears as an option along with the corrected email address when I type the name of the person to whom I am sending the email.
I tried a right click on the erroneous email address but delete does not appear as an option. This is very elusive in that it comes out of hiding only when I type the first few corresponding letters of the name of the addressee. This person has only 1 profile in my contact list and it contains the correct email address.

What you describe is a feature called "AutoComplete".
