How To Remove Auto-complete Drop Down List In Outlook 2010

By configuring an email client program in your computer, you can start downloading emails from the internet email servers to your machine. This will help you to view and work with these emails even when there is no connection to the network. Some of the famous email client programs are Microsoft’s Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla’s Thunderbird etc.
Among the above-mentioned email client programs, Outlook has been the favorite of majority of email client users. This is because Outlook has numerous useful features loaded in it. It not only helps you to download and view emails, but also helps you to add tasks, maintain a schedule of things etc.
When you compose an email, you need to enter the complete email address of the sender in the field for To. However, the frequently used email addresses are stored in your Outlook program, and it automatically gives you a drop down list of email addresses whenever you start entering an address. This can avoid the difficulty of entering the complete email address each time. However, some users may find this feature annoying and might want to delete these suggestions.
