Most of you who use Outlook are familiar and even dependent upon a feature called Auto-Fill. Auto-fill preselects addresses that you’ve already used to make it easier to quickly pull up e-mail addresses. When you press “p” for example, all of the addresses that start with “p” will show up in the quick auto-fill section of the TO: box.
The problem with this is that Outlook remembers EVERY address, even the bogus addresses. And as a result, you may accidentally send a message to someone to whom you did not intend.
So how do we reconcile this list? Simple. Highlight one of the names using the arrow key and press the Delete key on your keyboard. Could it be any easier? You’ll probably be banging your head against the wall after finding out how simple this is, just like I did.
