Eliminate Outlook's Second-Guessing When Typing an E-Mail Address


ELIMINATE OUTLOOK’S SECOND-GUESSING WHEN TYPING AN E-MAIL ADDRESS
I use Outlook for e-mail, and when I begin to type an address, the program automatically completes the address based on the previous e-mail message I sent. And, of course, that’s usually not the address I want. How can I stop that automatic action?

You’ll be happy to learn that the Microsoft engineers wisely provided a way to stop this feature.

Go to Tools, Options, Preferences, E-Mail Options, Advanced E-Mail Options, and then uncheck the box next to Suggest names while completing To, Cc, and Bcc fields.
