Don't understand e addresses
keyboard go to control panel>region and language
address book, search for a file with wab extension ie search for *.wab

Hi Terryf by e addresses I mean e-mail addresses. When i go to type mine into a window i get a list drop down to choose from. Most are out of date and need deleting but How?

Highlight and press Delete for each one.

Or use the Address Book to delete them.

In O E, go to Tools - Accounts - Mail and then highlight and click Remove.

Er no, DO NOT DO THAT. That will delete your account.

That's right. He wants to get rid of the old ones.

While looking into your problem I found that I had the same thing. I finally found this page click here which gives the same info as already supplied by Stuartli but in a litle more detail. I've just tried it and it worked for me. Don't confuse the Delete key with Delete that is usually available through right-click.

Greengage. I think that you may have misunderstood what Ambasedor is asking for. He only wants to remove previously deleted email addresses which stubbornly persist in the autofill entries that dropdown when you start typing in the 'To' field. He doesn't want to delete his email account.
