Email addresses no longer used

  exdragon 13:28 29 Jul 2009

Hi - when I come across a 'Login' box, the drop down menu frequently shows all the email addresses I've ever used to login anywhere.

As many of these are now out of date, could someone please let me know how I can get rid of them? I've deleted the accounts from my Outlook, but they are obviously hanging around somewhere else.

I am not sure how to get rid of all of them at one go BUT when one does pop up in a box just hit 'del' on your keyboard.

Try using the up and down arrows to highlight the unwanted addresses and delete them in turn

Look for something like security settings then Passwords remove the ones you do not want

bluto1 - many thanks, worked a treat. I'd tried every way I could think of to get rid of them.

woodchip - thanks, but it isn't passwords I need to delete, just old email addresses.

Pine Man - sorry, but that didn't work!
