#1
"Suggest names.." is a really useful tool, but we find users occasionally

accidentally sending to wrong addresses. This is particularly problematic if

the wrong address is a distribution list. Is there a way to restrict the

cached names to exclude distribution lists. If not then is it possble to

exclude certain folders, so maybe anything in "Contacts" is included but you

create a new folder "ContactsNotCached" or whatever and anything there is

excluded.

Thanks

No to both. The autocompletion feature has no connection to any contacts. It

just remembers the recipients you've used before. If you've used a DL before,

then change the DL, the cache can't know it. You need to remove the old

definition from the cache and re-resolve the new definition.

No, it's not possible.

All the NK2 file cares about is what address(es) were put on the To/CC/BCC

line.

f.h.
