Re: How can I clear the recipients in lookup in...
Get a shareware program called Filez for the Palm platform. Install it onto your Treo.
Go into the program and click on "View and Edit Files". Click on the "Internal" arrow to open the listing on your Treo.
Scroll down to the "S's" by hitting the "S" button on your keyboard. Scroll manually until you get to"SMS Msg Databa..." Click on it and then click the button that says "Details".
In the window that comes up, hit the "Delete" button. It will ask you if you are sure, which you are.
But you are not done yet!
You will now have to delete the old (full) record from your desktop backup database or you will get every one of those contacts back when you hotsync again.
Here's what to do about that:
Do a search for SMS Msg Database.pdb or SmsDB.pdb - or similar, these are the names they are called on my Mac.
Delete those files - and you should have a nice empty database to fill up with your own friends and contacts.
