    stale email addresses in auto-fill (2003)

    In my address book, I changed a contact's email address (e.g., Joe@OLDemail.com TO Joe@NEWemail.com).
    However, outlook insists on auto-filling the OLD address.
    How to correct this problem?

    Click in the To... (or Cc... or Bcc...) box in a new e-mail message. When you start typing a name or e-mail address, Outlook will display a list of choices that match what you typed. You can use the down arrow and up arrow keys on the keyboard to select an entry in the list. Then press the Delete key to remove the entry.

    That's what I've been doing but the address comes back in future emails to the same guy.

    You have two choices:
    - Delete your .nk2 file - this is the file that contains the 'autocomplete list' for Outlook.
    or
    - Use a utility to edit your nickname file, for example NK2View (free).
