delete an wrong email address from the "To" dropdown list

I discovered I erred in an email address in my contact's properties when the
isp returned the email as undeliverable. I corrected the address in the
properties for this contact. Now if I type in the contacts name in a new
message, the old address appears. If I type in the correct address the
contact's name and correct address is displayed. How do I remove the wrong
email address from the program so I can send by just typing in the person's
name?

I am trying to create a document that lists my boss' email addresses from his
drop-down list in Outlook from the Auto Complete function of a new message.
Is there an easier way than going through the alphabet and manually copying
to paper then retyping the list?

I am wondering if there is a way to remove an email address from the history
of the "to:" button in Outlook. What I mean is this.....when you start a new
message and type a letter in the to: text box, it will give you a list of
people that you may have sent to previously that start with that letter.
There may be some old addresses that are no longer valid. Is there a way to
get those old addresses deleted, so that they are no longer "remembered" for
future messages?

I am using exchange 2000. I would like to use an alias email address in the 'From' field of outlook. I've created one and its part of my user account. When I use this alias address in the 'from' field of a new message and send it, i get a message saying that i do not have permissions to use this email address. I cannot find any where to amend these permissions either. The idea is that in my workplace i get asked to create extra email addresses for various functions. Rather that create a user account with this email address, i would like just to create the email address and attach it to an existing account. I know i can do this using alias addressses but how do i use the address successfully in the 'from' field of a new message?

How can idelete the one  email address from the Global Address list

We are using Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2007.  When an email is received the To field simply shows the users name as listed in active directory.
For example, if the user’s name is “John Smith” in AD and his email is jsmith@companyA.com. When I send an email to jsmith@companyA.com, it will show “John Smith” in the To field of that email instead of his email address.
This poses a problem when John has multiple email addresses attached to his mailbox.  For example, if John has two email addresses, jsmith@companyA.com and jsmith@companyB.com and I send an email to either account, he will not know which address I sent the email to without checking the message header.
However, sometimes it seems Exchange rewrites the header to show that the email was sent to his primary SMTP email address, when it was not the case.

Does anyone know how to display email addresses in the To field?
And does anyone have any information about exchange rewriting the To field in the email header?
 
This is starting to become a real issue for some of the people here who have up to 10 different email addresses. Any help is appreciated.

I want to know if I can somehow import email contacts and email addresses
from yahoo to outlook so I can then try to sunch that info into my
blackberry.

Hi:

I apologize if this has been addressed before (I can't seem to find
it), but how do I automatically add email addresses from messages to
my contacts?

Thanks in advance!

On 10/18/2005 Russ Valentine answered Dave B's question about how to remove
an old (outdated) email address from the AutoComplete suggested email
addresses presented to the user when filling in the "To" field of a new email
message. Russ's answer explained how to remove the suggested name from the
selection list for the email being composed. However, it didn't seem to
answer how to PERMANENTLY delete the old email address so it never surfaces
as a suggested choice in the future--which is my question. Or did I
misinterpret Russ's answer?

How do you delete an incorrectly typed email address from showing up in the
auto-completion list? (I do not have it in my address book... only typed it
in wrong once but it still pops up now when entering the first x characters
of the email address).

I have put an erroneous email address into Send. now every time I want to
send an email to that person Outlook shows me two addresses for that person.
Since both email addresses are very similar i am constantly getting "Cannot
Deliver" messages. How can I Delete the wrong emaill address?

Hi all,

I am wondering is that possible to restrict an internal email address from
sending using Exchange Server 2000. We got an email address(which is from
distribution list), I would like to block this email address from sending to
anyone, including members in the own domain, This email address is moving
around within couple of distribution groups, so I prefer to restrict the
email address rather than restrict it using the distribution group itself.

Thanks

Supposing I had a list of email addresses in an Excel spreadsheet, which I pulled from a database. I need to do a mail merge with each of these email addresses, such that each recipient only sees their own email address in the To: field.

I do have each of these email addresses in my contacts (I think), because each of them has sent an email to me. But I think I also need to get them into a distribution list.

Is there any way I can populate this distribution list by grabbing them all of them at once, from Excel, and pasting them in? It appears that every option offered by Outlook requires doing it one. address. at. a. time. And it's a hundred email addresses... could be a thousand next time. What to do?

I've entered an incorrect e mail address on the "to" line when creating a new
e mail. When I start to input an e mail address, I get a drop down menu with
the incorrect address there and the correct one also. I would like to delete
the incorrect e mail address so it doesn't keep showing up in my list. How
do I do it?

Outlook "remembers" email afddresses you have previously used and offers them
as suggestions as you type an e-mail address n the "To:" e-mail address box.
How do you remove a mistyped entry from Outlook so it is no longer offered up
as an option?

I'm using Office Professional 2007.

When I start typing an email address in the TO line, several old incorrect
email address suggestions come up.

I have tried deselecting the advanced e-mail option "suggest names while
completing To, CC, and Bcc fields". When I chose that, then nothing comes
up including my good addresses.

Is there any way to delete incorrect email addresses from that list of
suggestions?

Thanks your help!

When I am sending an email, how do I extract the email address component
from the TO field?

MailItem.Recipients field doesn't have any objects in the list before
Outlook sends an item. MailItem.To just has address book names and not email
addresses.

I have all my Outlook 2007 Contacts set up to include the person's name and
then their email address in parenthesis in the display as field. Often I
need to place an email address in another document so I will open a new msg,
type a few characters of the desired address to auto-fill the TO: field and
then copy and paste.

The problem is, often I end up with only the person's name and not their
email address.

Also, when I rcv emails w/ an address that is in my Contacts, often only the
name will appear in the TO: or CC: field of the received msg and not the full
address. I have to right click on the name and look at the properties.

Is there a way to have outlook 2007 always display the full email address?

This is a real pain when I want to copy/paste.

I appreciate your help, -John
