Outlook Auto Complete is Evil

I am sure that most of you have a problem with having way too many email addresses and more importantly a lot of old email addresses. Or have a hotmail account for MSN IMs and a real account that you actually read.

Well, if you ever reply to an email via Outlook, Outlook will save that email address in its cache and when you type in a name in the TO line in the future, Outlook will auto complete for you to that email address. A feature? Well what if you also sometimes, rarely, send email from an account that you don't want people to send to you. Meaning I run a list server and it comes from my hotmail account. Two friends started to send mail all the time to my hotmail account and it would go to my junk folder (but herbal Viagra and porn came right in to my inbox). I begged and pleaded with them and they did not know what to do.

Well the Dutch to the rescue. My pal Remi Caron steered me to a KB article (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3ben-us%3b287623) that will show you how to clear this cache. The steps below are how to completely clear this cache. I can not figure out how to edit this cache at this point since I can't understand the file format when I open it in UltraEdit32.

Use the steps in the following section to reset the Outlook 2002 nickname cache for both Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me).

  1. Quit Outlook.
  2. Start Windows Explorer.
  3. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab.
  4. Under Advanced Settings, click to select the Show hidden files and folders check box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Start, point to Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
  7. In the Search for Files or Folders box, type *.NK2 in the File Name box.
  8. In the Look In box, click to select your local hard disk.
  9. Click Search Now.
  10. Right-click the .NK2 file with the name of the profile that you want to reset, and then click Rename.
  11. Rename the file to profilename.bak, and then press ENTER.
  12. Quit Windows Explorer.
  13. Restart Outlook.

Outlook will generate a new nickname cache.

I must admit to being more impressed for it. I've even recommended it to all my friends.

I have been using it. Outlook Express more stable and secure than other programs.
