How to Remove an Outlook Contact from Being Suggested with AutoComplete

Do you have an problem where you start typing in a name in Outlook and the wrong name pops up first?  Here’s the solution to that problem.

You can remove one or more recipients that show up as suggestions in the Auto-Complete List.

  1. Enter one or more characters in the ToCc, or Bcc boxes. Then in the Auto-Complete List that appears, select the unwanted suggested recipient by using the arrow keys or by hovering your mouse over the name you want to remove.

  2. Choose Delete command or press Delete.

Tip: Once a recipient name is removed, it won’t appear again in the Auto-Complete List unless you deliberately select it from your Contacts list or type the address in manually. These actions will add the address to the Auto-Complete List again
