    wrong addresses in memory (Win XP, Office XP)

    Hi gang,
    When starting to type an e-mail address Outlook gives me a choice of address, right there before I finish typing it. Some of the addresses in the list are wrong (my typing mistake). These addresses are not in my address book. How can I delete them, clear the memory of these wrong addresses?
    Thanks

    Use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight the ones you don't want, then press the Delete key to remove them. This information is from your Nickname file, and in Outlook 2002, there is no other way to edit that file (you can, of course, get rid of it completely and let Outlook gradually build a new one).

    I've actually bitten the bullet and taken Jeff's second option of deleting the file, more than once, without any real, noticeable impact. My notes on this read:

    1. Make sure Outlook is closed when you delete the file.

    2. Where your notes say "Outlook.NK2" - replace "Outlook" with the name of your Outlook profile -or- delete (rename) all of the *.nk2 files.
