The Reset Recent Addresses tool lets you reset recent addresses that Outlook stores. This tool deletes all recent addresses instead of you having to manually delete addresses one at a time.
When to use the tool
When you compose an email message and add people on the To
, or Bcc
line, Outlook suggests names as you type characters. The list of names that Outlook uses is a combination of stored contacts, the company directory, and recent contacts. Recent contacts have an "X" character next to each name. Without this tool, you have to click the "X" on each contact to remove that contact from the Recent Address List. The Reset Recent Addresses tool cleans out all recent addresses at the same time.
How to use the tool
- Download and open the ResetRecentAddresses tool.
- Click the Reset Now! button.
- Exit the Reset Outlook Recent Addresses tool.
