Whenever you attempt to type an email address (that had been used previously), you’d notice Outlook will provide a drop down list containing previous similar addresses you had used. So after some usage, the list gets longer and you want to clear the history and finding no setting in Outlook and you start to uninstall and reinstall Outlook. So here’s a faster way or you.

  1. Close Outlook.
  2. Launch Windows Explorer, type %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook in the address bar and hit enter.
  3. locate files with extension *.NK2 and delete them (usually named Outlook.NK2).
  4. Launch Outlook.

Another method which allows you to delete selected history.

  1. In Outlook, type the address that you wanted to delete.
  2. Once the drop down list appear, use your arrow key and navigate to the address to be deleted.
  3. Hit Delete key on your keyboard to delete it.
