AutoComplete Entry Deletion In Outlook 2007

Microsoft Outlook, a widely used email client, has many features other than its email management capability.  It also doubles as a personal digital manager that can help you manage your daily, weekly or monthly activities in an organized way. With its calendar, task manager, notes, drafts and journal, you can streamline your daily activities more effectively.
You will find many of its features extremely useful when it comes to sending emails, like its Spell Check, category options and AutoComplete. Outlook’s AutoComplete feature saves names and email addresses you use when you send emails in Outlook. Here, in this section, we will see how to delete all or specific AutoComplete entries in Microsoft Outlook. Follow these Outlook Tech Support guidelines to perform AutoComplete entry deletion in Outlook 2007.
Deleting entire AutoComplete entries
  • Close Microsoft Outlook 2007 if it is open.
  • Now you need to locate the place where your AutoComplete entries are stored. To go to this location, click the Start button located on your Windows Taskbar and click on Computer. Now you need to enter the following entry into the Windows Explorer address field located at the top of the window: “%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook". Now press the Enter key.
  • Now you need to turn on the option to view file extensions. To turn this on, go to the Tools menu at the top of the Window and click on Options. This will bring up the Options window. Now click on View tab. Deselect the checkbox next to Hide extensions for known file types to remove the check mark, and then click the OK button.
  • Locate the file named Outlook.NK2 and delete it. Make sure that you delete only the file ending with the extension NK2 and not any other files with the name Outlook.
Deleting only specific AutoComplete entry
  • Launch Outlook 2007 on your computer and select the Mail section in the left-hand navigation pane.
  • Click the New button at the top of the screen just below the list of menu options to open a new mail.
  • Begin typing the email address you want to remove from AutoComplete. You should see the email address display below the line of text you are typing.
