Outlook: Sending to the Wrong Email Address
Mon, Nov 9 2009 12:31
One of my friends sends an email message to me telling me about their great new job and letting me know that they have a new email address. I dutifully update my Outlook Address book and fix the address.
Five unanswered emails later, I realize that I have been sending email to the WRONG email address. Even though I fixed my Outlook Address book, the Outlook Most Recently Used (MRU) list still has the OLD email address. What's to be done?
Then Beth Massi shared with me an Outlook tip that I want to pass along: You can delete items from the MRU in Outlook!
Say I am typing in John's name:
If I am not watching closely, I will send it to the wrong address again (nowhere.com).
To prevent this mistake:
- Highlight the incorrect address.
- Press the Del key.
The unwanted MRU entry is then deleted.
