Stop Auto Fill-in

Do your own

Here's how to stop Outlook from automatically filling in the e-mail address when typing the name of a contact in the To: field.

Outlook's Suggest Names feature helps speed up routine e-mail activities. However you may want to get rid of it when, for instance, you have two or more e-mail addresses that are similar and Outlook keeps choosing the wrong one.

To turn this feature off:

  1. Select Options from Outlook's Tools menu

  2. Click on the Preferences tab

  3. Clickthe E-mail Options button

  4. Click the Advanced E-mail Options button

  5. Uncheck the box, near the bottom of the dialog, labeled:
    "Suggest names while completing To, Cc, and Bcc fields"

Using Outlook's AutoComplete feature

Suggest names doesn't work?

If Auto Suggest and name checking is not working, rename the *.NK2 file. Outlook will create a new one. You can rename or delete the NK2 file if you want to get rid of all addresses in your autocomplete file.
