Remove old or bogus address form Outlook email auto-complete address book

Problem

As a result of people changing their email address, or just simple typos, the MS Outlook auto-complete list ends up with a number of bogus queries.

Solution

To remove a name or email address from Outlook’s auto-complete list, simply follow these 4 steps:

  • Create a new email message in Outlook (don’t worry, you can cancel it as soon as the task is complete)
  • Start typing the name or address you want to remove
  • Use the down arrow key to highlight the desired (undesired) entry — make sure you actually use the arrow keys on the keyboard: if you use the mouse, the address will be selected in your recipient list, and you have to start over
  • Press the Del key on your keyboard, et voilà, the unwanted entry is gone

Can your address book accomodate adressee groups?

There are multiple ways to have address books:

  • In your email program (i.e. Mozilla Thunderbird or Outlook Express) you can set up distribution lists.
  • In the email management tool, you can set up aliases with multiple recipients (there is virtually no limit to the number of recipients)
  • In the address book of webmail, you can set up distribution lists as well.
  • We can create mailing lists for you if you would like us to, and we can even create them with autoresponder and other sales enhancing tools.
