Delete Bad Addresses: MS Outlook

Microsoft Outlook tries to be very helpful and keeps track of the people that you correspond with. There are pros and cons to this behavior, however. On the plus side, Outlook remembers addresses you've used in the past, even if you have never ... stored them as Contacts and you can retrieve them by typing only the first few letters. The cons however, go on for a bit. The worst is that as you update your contacts, the AutoComplete name cache file remains static.

Trace the Origin of Email: Visually

Infopackets Reader 'Jennifer' writes: " Dear Dennis, I recently received an email from an unknown person via Yahoo. I think I understand how the email got to me but I'm not sure.
