This is really niggling me.

I have auto-complete for e-mail addresses enabled and it was working fine until I accidentally typed a password on to the end of one of my e-mail addresses when choosing the address to log in to a free games site, and now when I type the first letter of the address it gives me the option of using the one with the addition on the end as well. How can I delete the unwanted entry? Using IE 6.0 and Outlook Express with XP Home.

Regards,

Sapins.

Delete the address in your Address Book and type in the correct version in the Add (new) address forms.

Hi stuartli, My e-mail addresses are still in the address book in their original form. The ones I am trying to get rid of appeared when I tried to log in to the tombola web site as follows;

login/enter e-mail address/I type first letter and auto complete kicks in but instead of going to the second line, enter password, I mistakenly stayed on the same line and typed in my password on to the e-mail address, now when I type in the first letter of the e-mail address it gives me the option of choosing the correct one or the wrong one with the password on the end. I want to get rid of the wrong one so it no longer pops up when I type the first letter.

I've managed to sort it out.

Went to IE/tools/Internet options/content/AutoComplete/cleared forms and passwords. Went back to tombola site, typed in my e-mail address and password and hey presto typing in first letter gives me the full address to click on.

Thanks for your reply, appreciate your time.

Regards,

Sapins.

I don't know what the tombola website is, but I presume that you've deleted a cookie and then created a new one whilst on the site.

That's why your address book didn't come into the equation as suggested in your thread...:-)

Otherwise I would probably have suggested what you did in the end.
