Auto-Complete Name List - Outlook
The Auto-Complete Name List is a feature in Outlook that suggests names when you begin to type in the To, Cc, and Bcc lines of an e-mail message. You can turn this feature off, remove a particular name from the list, or empty the list to start from scratch. The list from this feature is not stored in your Contacts or Address Book; it is automatically generated and updated as you send e-mail.
