OK, so you have Office 2010. I can only tell you that it works in Outlook 2010 exactly the same way as it works in 2013, the way I told you in my first post. I have Office 2010 installed on one virtual machine, tested it now and it works perfectly.

You might want first check that this wrong email address is not stored as a contact. If it is, remove the contact first, then start a new email, start typing the address, use arrow keys to select it and press DEL.
Yes, as mentioned in my OP, I deleted the redundant email address from the people's list. So now I don't get why it won't delete if you are saying it should. You are suggesting in this post what you said earlier and that is what I tried without success. Guess this has gone as far as it can. Thanks anyway.

I am sorry I am not unable to help you. I have tested this now several times both in Outlook 2010 and 2013, it works every time.
