    The capibilty is there (just selcet the adress sugestion you want to remove and type the DELTE-Key) BUT: Only few people konw it and it's very unintuitive. I think the whole problem is to have multiple adress storing systems: Suggestions and Contacts

    Suggestions
    a) are created "on the fly" while creating mails
    b) but you don't know how and were to manage the created adresses
    c) typos are repated and many people don't know how to get rid of it
    c) searching is horror beacause you must know the *first* letters, not *some* letters so you try firstname, lastname, abriviations, companyname....

    Contacts
    a) have to be created intentionally
    b) can't be used intuitive when typing adresses because this feature is blocked by "Suggestions"

    => Solution: Get rid of traditional "On the fly Suggestion-List" and use a more professional intuitve "Contacts-based Suggestion System" instead of it. To provide users that prefer the "On the fly Suggestion-List" (and therfore don't edit Contacts) just create an optional Feature that stores every new Adress you type in the Contacts (this could switched "On" automatically if contacts are still empty, Contacts that are created "On the Fly" should be marked to destinct them from Contacts that are edited by user)

    Please create this feature! I can't belibe that suuch an very easy to implement and usefull feature, that is included in so many other Mailingclients, is missing in Outlook since years. The existing context search when typing in an adressfield
    a) completly unintitive because
    * you don't know where the suggestions are stored (why not in your contacts?)
    * You have to type the *first* letters of the Adress instaed of typing *some* letters: So you have to try firstname, lastname, companyname, abriviations, emailname etc. to find an adrress you know that must be stored in the system
    b) creates errors that could be avoided, because if you type the adress one time false it's repeated false again and again evan if you have the right adress in your contacts. I know there are shortcuts but I have to find out them again and again.
