How to remove Auto Complete in Outlook

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

When sending an email or just typing an address in the “To:” field, I am getting a list of addresses. There are various autocomplete recipients which I sometimes accidentally mistyped. How can I remove it? I am using MS-Outlook 2010. Please help.

How to remove Auto Complete in Outlook


hi, to remove the auto complete feature In Outlook 2010, 

1.Click the File menu and Select  Options.

2. In the Outlook Options window Click the Mail tab.

3. Scroll down roughly halfway until you see Send messages. Uncheck the Use Auto-Complete List to suggest names when typing in the To, Cc, and Bcc lines box.

An Optional Step is to clear out the Auto-Complete list, simply Click the Empty Auto-Complete List button.  

4. You’ll see a confirmation window about clearing the Auto-Complete list, Click Yes.

Now Outlook Auto-Complete should be completely disabled and any history that was in the Auto-Complete list should be completely erased (if you clicked the clear auto complete button). 

Sorry for the Double Post…it's because the first didn't display any pictures.
