extra names showing up in distribution lists

Not open for further replies.


I've created a distribution list and have since edited it, removing some names. When I look at the distribution list it looks fine, but when I expand the list in the To: box in an actual email, old addresses are appearing still. I can't remove them because they do not appear in the distribution list. Any ideas? Is the list archived somewhere and its actually getting the info from the archived version?

Are you facing this issue with a particular distribution list or all of them saved under Outlook Contacts?

If the issue is limited to a specific one, try to recreate the distribution list which may have become corrupt.

They might be the auto complete entries stored. Deleted the names from the list when you select the to button, close and reopen Outlook and that should resolve your issue.
