Remove contact from windows mail ? !

I've deleted it from windows mail contacts, and from within explorer contacts but when I type the persons name it comes up as the old email address I deleted not the new contact... How can I remove the contact completely so the new contact details are initiated when I type the persons name in windows mail..?

Would this be helpful? How to clear the email auto-complete entries in Windows Mail

If you would rather not manually change the registry, there is a small utility at the bottom of the tutorial under "Related Articles".

Don't forget to Back up your registry: Registry - Backup and Restore
