Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

Question: Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

I have a situation where someone has 2 email addresses. One of them is now redundant and I have deleted it from the People section. However, when I am set to make a new email to that person and type the first letter of their name, in the pop up window (that you can click on) their old email address still appears.
How do I delete this from that list? Can find no way to do so.

Preferred Solution: Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

That's it.

I'm having trouble with appointment notifications. When a new appointment/meeting request is sent, it is going to my email (editor of the calendar) and does not go to my boss (owner of the calendar). I'm wondering how to change the recipient of these appointment/meeting requests. Any help is much appreciated.

More detail:

When a co-workerer creates a meeting in calendar and invites my boss, I (his executive assistant) get the email, but he does not. This is obviously a problem as he would like to know when new appointments are made without having me report in to him every time a new one arrives.

When I try to create a new email, as soon as I type in the to: field, a "journal entry window pops up.

How can I get back to regular email?


Answer:Outlook automatically goes to Journal Entry when I create a new email

Hello ascdocs, welcome to Seven Forum.

Perhaps turning it off in options would resolve the problem:
Turn off and empty Journal - Outlook -

To turn off Journal, you have to clear multiple check boxes in the Journal Options dialog box. No single option can turn Journal off.
Turn off Journal

On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Preferences tab, click Journal Options.
Under Automatically record these items, clear all the check boxes.
Under Also record files from, clear all the check boxes.
It is not necessary to clear the check boxes under For these contacts.
Empty Journal

Emptying Journal involves deleting journal entries.
Do one of the following:
Delete a single entryIn Journal, click the entry, and then press DELETE.

Delete multiple entries
In Journal, in the Navigation Pane, under Current View, click Entry List. A table view of all the entries appears.
Click any entry in the table, and then press CTRL+A, or on the Edit menu, click Select All.

I have had to reinstall pc due to it going at a crawl!!

After installing Outlook 2002, I can not get Outlook to auto fill the email address field when I start to type an email address in it.

The address book is there and in tacked after copying the outlook.pst file back to its original location after install.

How do I get Outlook to autofill?

Also when I click the 'TO' button in the new email window, it says that there is no address book!
but when I click the address book icon in the main Outlook window there are email address there?!

Any ideas how I can get this to work correctly again.

Answer:reinstalled pc, now create email in Outlook 2002 does not auto fill email address like before

When you did the re-install, did you erase/format the hard drive before the re-install? If you did and did not save the Outlook auto fill file, then the all the auto fills you had are gone. Did you import the pst file into outlook?

I am trying to set up a second imap email address using Outlook 2007.
My first address work fine.
When trying to use the second address I am unable to change the delivery folder for new items. There is no Change Folder radio button, not even a greyed out one. I have found lots of advice on the Microsoft help pages but none of it works (no change there then!).
How can I change the folder? I am unable to use the new address until this folder is changed.

Answer:W7: Outlook 2007 Email: Unable to change folder for new email delivery

Not quite sure what you mean. Outlook creates a separate folder for each imap account. POP accounts share an inbox but imap does not.

I've just found a pst file with all my old email. I'd like to put them back on the server (hotmail) but before doing that I've seen that some of them were not recived (or sent) to my actual address ( but to an old one ( So I was thinking to export them from outlook 2013 to CSV, modify that address into the new one and then import them back on outlook 2013. The problem is that when I export them to CSV, in that file they don't have the date (received or sent) and so when I get them back on outlook 2013 they miss that info.
Can anyone help me doing this? I've been told that VBA macro should be useful for this, but having a look in it I have no idea of what I sould do.
Ah, instead of outlook 2013 I can also use thunderbird (45.3.0) if it's easier with it, but then I'd have to convert that pst file.

Hi Geniuses:
I wanted to throw this out to you to see if there was a solution to my "inbox zero woes"


Yahoo Email address (yes I know)
iPhone with Outlook App
Mac Computer with Mail APP
Extra Gmail account with a "send gmail from account"

What I found was that while on the road (most of my email use) the Outlook App for iPhone was fastest at fetching mail, and I LOVE the interface (ability to snooze emails, archive etc).

Problem is, my home mac with MAIL doesn't play nice when I archive Emails on my app.
Secondly, I also like to use gmail as a web client for searching files, using todo etc.

My question: can all of these play nice in the same sandbox? Can I archive on one device, and have it translated amongst the others? If not, what are my solutions (switching over to outlook on Mac? Just using a GMAIL address from now on). Would love some light / insight on this.

Many, Many thanks!

I have a large email group - over 200 names - in Outlook Express Address Book. A number of outdated email addresses bounced back to me. I wish to remove them from my Group. But OE seems to list only names, not email addresses. I cannot find a way to search by email address. Therefore I am faced with the task of looking up each name's properties to see if it's the email I need to eliminate.
Surely there must be a better way!
Or should I just find a better program to use? If so, suggestions?

I have been using 2003 and 2007 Outlook Express for my emails for years. Is it possible to transfer my email contacts from 2007 to my new computer?

Thanks LeeB

I searched tutorials and found nothing

Answer:Can I transfer Email Contacts from Outlook 2007 to W-10 Default Email

Dealing with different E-Mail clients [installed] and online/Webmail has become one of the most frustrating issues of the last few years.

Outlook Express was discontinued, last came with Windows XP. Windows Vista had Mail and Windows 7 had no built-in E-Mail Client. With Outlook Express the contacts were in the Windows Address Book and the file name was some_name.wab, whatever the user set the E-Mail up as. Outlook Express did not use the 2003 and 2007 version titles, that was with Microsoft Outlook, part of Microsoft Office which used different storage techniques. Generally both types could Export contacts as .csv files which could be used in other programs or even as a spreadsheet in such a program as Excel, QuattroPro, etc. Win7 and newer have a Contacts listing in C:\Users\user-name that also can be exported.

I use Outlook 2000 on a W2k pc. There are 2 emails in my deleted folder that I am unable to completely delete. No matter what I try to do with these two emails (open, delete, move, etc) the same thing happens - I get an error saying "OUTLOOK.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created."

I am able to work with any other email that is in the deleted folder and not get this message. It is only these two (they are duplicate emails - both exactly the same from the same person) - that I am having problems with.

I have tried the following to correct: detect & repair Office, I have disabled all add-ins, renamed outllib.dll to outllib.old and back again to outllib.dll.

Here's an update to my post - I ran scanpst.exe. The utility allowed me to delete one of the emails, but not the other. Subsequent attempts to run the scanpst.exe result in the message "no errors found". Why would this work on one email and not the other (both were identical emails)?

I'd appreciated any & all help.

My wife and I both use Outlook Express for email. I have no problem deleting emails, but when my wife tries to delete hers, they go to the "deleted" file and then they proceed right back into the inbox. She has about six hundred messages now in her inbox. I've tried to compare the settings on my email set-up with those on hers and can find no differences. Obviously, I might be missing something; any suggestions?Thanks.

Answer:Deleting email in Outlook Express

Exactly what happens after she deletes messages?  Will those messages in the Deleted Items folder stay there long enough to empty/delete all messages in the Deleted Items folder?Does she have her Outlook Express set to leave messages on the server for a certain time after she downloads messages?  I'm wondering whether what's really happening here is that she is getting duplicate/multiple downloads of the same messages, not that messages are mysteriously moving out of the Deleted Items folder back into the Inbox.  If she deletes messages into the Deleted Items folder and leaves OE open, can you actually verify that messages move back into Inbox?If the latter is, indeed, occuring, then I'd suspect a virus or malware problem.

Dear Microsoft & Social Technet Microsoft,
Email that lays in the "Junk Email" system does Not allow deletion.
 This is technical problem that spans many types of Email addresses.
If Microsoft has the ability to Recognize Junk Email, then it should
 allow for its proper Deletion or Blocking.
Too many times when I select a list of Junk Email to "Block", I'm
   left with an Alert phrase that says:
   "This action can't be performed because the senders address
   "<>" isn't valid.
   (Please see the image "BlockMailList-Cant(111216).png")

Then it STOPs the rest of the list from being processed.
When I try to match the Email Title to the designation in
 the presented list (that can't be performed), I am left with
 NO way to define which of the many emails that might be.
 (Please see the image "BlockMailList(111216).png")

The Alert Message does NOT match the Titled Email with the
 message.  The message is only the internal email addresses.
 Therefore, the two data lists can't be matched.
 (Please see the image ("JunkMail-IDsWontGo(5)(111516.png")

Lately, I've resorted to "Block"ing them One-At-A-Time.
 That is very time consuming and doesn't follow Microsoft Protocol.

Went to Wndows 7 after the end of XP support. Decided to set up the Microsoft Outlook in the Office 2007 so I could utilize the calender etc. I have traditionally accessed my email through the ISPs applications on my computer as well as my iPad and iPhone. It seems that the MS Outllook has wiped out my emails from the ISP apps back to the middle of March.I can get my curent emails as long as I don't open the MS outlook. Is there a setting in the MS outlook that I can change to prevent this or am I bound to the MS Outlook for my email access. Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Microsoft Outlook wipes my email from my other email apps

Good luck.

2. Random emails are being deleted from my inbox. The time and date of the message still shows, but the 'from' and 'subject line' and the entire body of the email message is deleted. The messages are still on my Blackberry.

Is there a limit to how many email addresses I can paste at one time from an Excel list into the To: field of an Outlook email? I've tried pasting 1200 at one time and it appears to work mostly fine, but there are occasional quirky results that makes me wonder if I'm pasting too many at one time.

Answer:Pasting email addresses into an Outlook email

I don't know the limit but OE have a limit to how many characters a text field like the TO: can hold. If you're copying 1200+ emails into a field you could be hitting that limit.Remember OE is a personal email client and not designed as a mass mailer.

Hi guys heres one that is driving me nuts.
an email account is set up with an isp here , its
so the email is say [email protected]
now joe has two email aliases on his account e.g.

[email protected]
[email protected]

now when joe accesses his account through outlook it obviously checks the btconnect account and sends the mail to the correct alias, but it cant seem to do it.
what happens is , it logs on checks one alias then the server errors whilst checking the other as it is still logged on i assume to the main btconnect mail account and so errors out

e.g [email protected] works and errors out
i would like to find a way to check flooring first and roofing after but cant figure it out
someone suggested using identities in outlook express but isnt outlook the better program and surely there is some kind of feature for this problem

usually after it gets its bearings it is then happy and says send receive complete but after a couple of tries and leaving an error message at the bottom of the screen
as it is trying to check the two accounts on the same email address at the same time.
any ideas anyone
i am even willing to try thunderbird instead
just the managers like the calender etc in outlook

e.g. [email protected] and filter the mail for the aliases into the corresponding mail box, but how then if a mail is written in outlook could it be send from the correct account.
e.g [email protected] or [email protected] rather than the mail appearing as though it was sent from [email protected] , wow outlook is confusing stuff lol.

If that's your email address then block out the first part with X's immediately otherwise you'll get spam email forever. An Edit option is available on here.There have been several issues with Windows 8.1. Check for Windows Updates now (the bulk arrive on the second Tuesday of each month or next day depending on your time zone).Check also with your computer manufacturer to see if there have been any new network drivers offered for Win 8.1. Best update them anyhow.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Hi all

One problem that i'm yet to figure out in Outlook is how it will show an attached email message as just that, an attachment instead of adding it to the end of the original email such as in hotmail or yahoo. This is particularly annoying when reading emails forwarded through more than one person and you have to keep clicking on the email attachments which then open up another email window etc. until you have about 10 seperate windows open before you get to the original message. I hope i'm not too confusing

To get to the point, does any one have a solution to this? it would be greatly appreciated!!

It is hard to " accidentally " delete an e-mail. It takes at least 2 clicks to delete an e-mail.
Even then, you can still retrieve it in Deleted Items folder.
That should be more than enough to safe-guard accidental delete.

Anyway, I don't believe there is such as option that you are asking for. But then, I could be wrong.

Hey guys,
Using Outlook express 6 at home, and any emails that are sent or received from it are wrong.
For example, using that email account i send one to my work account, the arrival date on the email at work will be 12hrs from now..
And an email coming into the suspect account will be 8hrs old..

There is no consistency between the time offsets, ive checked the clock and TimeZone settings on the computer, and my internet provider (internode) assures me it is not to do with their end.. Which is true because my other internode account works fine..

Ive even tried the same account on Mozilla on the same computer...

So this all leads me to think it is a particular setting somewhere on the computer in question...

Any ideas? been bugging me for months!

Answer:Outlook Express 6 - Wrong Email times?

seems that once i played with the Time Zone and clock settings again it sorted itself out...weird cause ive tried that before..

The clock on my PC is right, but in Outlook it is wrong, I changed from Outlook Express. The time is wrong on incoming emails. I've triple checked the PC clock and triple checked the Outlook clock settings; both are correct. Outbound emails show the correct time, but incoming are 1 hour late on the displayed time. I've been to the MS website and checked everything. Also, under PC clock settings/internet time gives me an error msg when I try to synch the time with internet time as well . It's driving me NUTS

I hope someone can help. I can't really say if it's from switching from OE to O, or from the early daylights saving time...I'm guessing the latter.

The other problem I'm having with Outlook is importing emails. I have Comcast and those emails transmit fine; sending and receiving. But, work uses FuseMail for webmail, which imports into Outlook fine, but when I try to respond to work emails in Outlook, it will not send the emails. I have listed in the settings. Any advice?

Thank you

We are running Outlook 2003 in XP SP2 Home Edition. My wife and I each have our own user name, etc.

We have 3 POP email accounts: Hers, Mine and Ours, with different usernames and passwords, all with the same ISP ( I have set up her Outlook account to receive Hers and Ours, with instructions to leave a copy of Our messages on the server for 10 days. Of course, I have set up mine to download Mine and Ours, leaving Ours on the server 10 days. That way, theoretically, I'll see all my email and our email, she'll see all our email and her email, unless one or the other of us doesn't get on for 10 days (highly unlikely...10 hours maybe).

Mine works fine. But she keeps getting stuff like the CERT reports, stuff from The Tech Guy, reviews from ZD Net and other stuff she doesn't want to wade through. When she opens one, at the top it is clearly addressed to me, not her or us. When she pulls down Tools and selects Email accounts, Outlook shows her only two: Hers and Ours. Microsoft KB search reveals nothing; ditto Help search.

Any clues? How come she can't stop getting mail for an account which is not listed in Outlook, or even in Start/Control Panel/Mail/Profiles/Accounts?

Thanx for any suggestions...

Answer:Outlook Shows Wrong Email in Contact

Has she tried deleting the contact from the address book and adding it back? Try it on a couple of them to see if this resolves the issue.

If it does, then she can delete and add back the rest of them. The only downside to this is that it would be tedious to do if she has a lot of contacts.

Maybe someone else will have a better idea for a cure.

In Outlook, when you type someones name into the 'To' box, Outlook will suggest the name (if you have emailed this address before, or they are in your address book). However, if you remove the person from your address book, it still suggests their name (and Outlook knows this, because it says that the name or distribution group is no longer in the address book). The problem is, that when you CHANGE someones email address in your address book, then send a new email, and Outlook suggests the name, it suggests the old email address, and not the new one. Is there anyway to clear the cache of rememberd addresses? I have tried disabling and renabling the auto suggestion, but it's still doing it. I don't really want to remove and readd the Exchange settings as it will probably lose all the personalised settings.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks a lot,
Daniel Murfitt

Answer:Outlook 'suggesting' the wrong email addresses in the 'To' field...

This is because it is being stored in the nickname list.

You can either press the delete key to delete that single entry or delete the nickname list file completely.

Not sure which version of Outlook you have. The Nickname Cache is used by Outlook for automatic name checking and the automatic completion.
I you want to clear the cache with the list of names that Outlook shows when sending an e-mail

Close Outlook
Start the Windows Explorer
With the focus on the root of the C: drive, search for *.nick (Outlook2000) or *.NK2 (Outlook2002 or newer)
You will find a file that starts with your profile name
Rename this file
Restart Outlook
Outlook will start rebuilding the file over again.

I have seen Thunderbird work with Avast IS on my brother's pc but I see that for it to scan all emails the SSL/TSL should be deactivated. I was asking the tech guys at the office about email clients, digital certificates etc and they only remarked "google it" So I came here....Now my questiosn are: a. Is it safe to disable SSL/TSL in an email client? In the office we have that(with Norton Enterprise) and I see an indicator at the bottom of the email message that it was scanned by Norton. b. Can there be an application that can allow me to have SSL/TSL at the same time have Avira scan my emails...?

"how can my email get out"
it will be in the address book of anyone that you have sent an email to and if their pc or webmail is compromised the spammers will have all the addresses from their address books.
As for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) only you will know if you use the program(s) in question and whether you want them or not.
Or perhaps you could list them and ask for opinions?

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.


Answer:BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

unlike Win 7, it does not open my browser, open my YAHOO email link, then PASTE the email address in that link in the COMPOSE box. ONE STEP, IT DOES ALL THE WORK.

Win 10 ANOTHER MATTER: IT starts some window/PAGE/APP labeled as "INBOX YAHOO" that is a want-to-be email agent.
I DONT WANT the inbox but to send an email which it has no commands to to so.
So, I have to:
copy /cut the address as it did plug it in its TO: box.
Start my browser,
Start Yahoo
Paste the address into Yahoo. then can rock & roll..... LOTS of wasted efforts ..

Have tried to get help from SUPPORT.MICROSOFT.COM" = Useless.

If you used Win 7, had to use a link for an email instead of the "words" ..., "COPY-ABLY ADDRESS" you may know the problem.

Of course, if not a link, you copy/paste yourself, but those "links" are "cute" but not practical for Win 10 they HIDE the actual email address.

Why Win 10 wanted to change that I have no clue as Win 7 does this problem, PERFECT.
Why Win 10 wants to be a "go between" which makes us use its app and is useless, and has no ability to send the message? I have no clue either. Maybe it was "busywork" for the programmer.

ANY one fix this double, triple work Win 10 gave us?

Re: Is there a simple email client without all the extras like opening a new email ac


Sadly nothing is easy I'm afraid when using Yahoo webmail unless you have the paid account, Live Mail and Gmail are the better free email accounts, but try the below.....

You can use your Yahoo email address with the Windows Live Email Client, or try Thunderbird as its free too.

BUT note that to setup POP3 account with an email client application you may need a Yahoo Plus account which is a paid for account over the free email account. But you can try Ypops! to set the free email up with POP3 access. Thunderbird + Ypops instructions HERE

I have an email I get on a regular basis that I can see who it's from and the subject line but the body of the email is blank. I have problems with it in WLM but I can view it just fine in web mail and from my iPhone. Not sure if it's an issue on the end of the person who's sending it or an issue with WLM but since I can view it completely in web mail and on my iPhone I would think it's something with WLM. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Answer:Body of email not showing in one particular email in Windows Live Mail

Hi, I finally was able to talk with someone from the place that was sending the email in question I was having issues with. They found out their emails are not compatible with WLM but are working on a resolution. I'm not sure what kind of email service they're using but it's not like WLM is some obscure mail client. Anyway, I'm marking this as solved even though I've received a few emails from them since and still having the issue of nothing in the body of the message. Now that they've figured out what the issue is I hope they fix it soon.

Oh dear! I created a mail merge in Word 2013 and chose the Edit Individual Documents option under Finish and Merge. I edited each and every email to personalize them. There was no option to email directly from that document, so I went back to the original email and sent them all. To my dismay, every person received an email including a [ ] in the space where I had entered their personalized information! Totally embarrassed. How can I email the edited documents??

My email app for Nokia Lumia 630 with Windows Phone 8.1 shows only 1 email in the inbox folder, that is the latest email. I'm using Yahoo! mail. It used to work correctly, showing all emails, but it works no longer that way. I've tried to delve into settings, but I did not any setting that would explain the behavior. Can anyone help with this problem?
Thanks in advance,

Answer:Why is my email app only showing 1 email (latest) in inbox (Yahoo! mail)?

Did you receive 1 mail in the last 7 days ? If you go into settings, click on sync settings. In there the default option from Download e-mail from is 7 days. So any mail that has exceeded 7 days will not appear. Check what is your setting.

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given ( and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (, it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

hello anyone

Here is a question I need you help me:

I want to send an attachment file to many email addresses at one time, but when I sent it to them, I just want each person's email see only his or her email (as like as -->To: [email protected] in his or her mail only) that I sent for the person.

Can anyone tell me how to do that, or that can not do it, only send one by one? Please let me know immediately.

Thank you for your help


For example, I don't want it display in each person's email like that:

Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2004 17:35:51 -0700 (PDT)
From: "Phil T" <[email protected]> Add to Address Book
Subject: re: one to many (one file to each separate person)
To: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
[email protected]--

I want it display like this below (each person received like this, To: [email protected]) and other email received the same file too:

Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2004 17:35:51 -0700 (PDT)
From: "Phil T" <[email protected]> Add to Address Book
Subject: re: one to many (one file to each separate person)
To: [email protected]
Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2004 17:35:51 -0700 (PDT)
From: "Phil T" <[email protected]> Add to Address Book
