    email address appears in address book (OE 6)

    A friend says that when she receives an email from a certain person, that person's email address appears in her OE address book automatically. She has deleted the address but when the person sends another email, it again shows up in the address book. My friend is not replying to the received email - the address simply shows up in the address book. What could be causing this?

    One thought I have about this - is "this certain person" asking for a return receipt? And if so, in her OE Tools/Options/Receipts - does she have toggled "Always send a read receipt"? She would maybe miss seeing this receipt emailed back to "this certain person"? By allowing the return of a receipt, this action might trigger the next item that she probably does have selected in her Tools/Options/Send tab - "Automatically put people I reply to in my Address Book". And since the returned receipt would in essence be a reply, she'd end up with the address in her address book. I don't know this for sure but after checking all my Tools/Option choices, it is the only explanation I could think of for the problem she is having.

    Just checked with my friend- she did NOT have the "always send a read receipt" checked. I did have her disable the "automatically put people I reply to in my address book" option. But she assures me that she does not reply to the messages and the address still shows up in her address book.

    This sure does seem odd. Hopefully someone has a solution for her! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
