Windows mail contacts problem

I have edited an e-mail address for a contact and when I type in the first two or three letters of the person's name the old e-mail address comes up. I have set the new one as my preferred e-mail address. I can't figure out why this is happening.

    Okay,
    What e-mail software are you using?
    Microsoft Outlook (2000,2003,2007)?
    Outlook Express?
    Thunderbird?
    etc...

    If I know that I can give you instructions to fix your problem.

Thats because old email address is saved in auto complete list
>we can delete the email address while typing the name just highlight it and push delete,
>or lets delete this regsitry key (this might delete whole auto complete list ) and it will re-create the list as we send messages

Okay,
based upon that fact that you are using Vista mail (which obviously has problems) I would recommend that you backup the data in the mail client, install Office 2003 Pro, and use that mail client. It is better, but Loyed is right if you really want to continue using vista mail I would delete that registry key, or you can download this software,

If you need some more instruction on what to do, or how to fix this problem and I will give you a detailed set of instructions.

How to write letter verifing address

Instructions
    • 1Before you begin, set your marginicon1.png 1 inch from the top, 1 inch from the bottom, and 1.25 inches on both sides.
    • 2If you're using letterhead, there's no need to type in your name and address. If you're using plain white paper, type in your name, address and phone number (phone number is optional), centering the text. Make the font in this portion of the letter slightly larger than the rest of the text. You should also type your name, address and phone number in boldicon1.png type.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3About four lines down from your name and address, type the date in full after strikingicon1.png the "Tab" key seven times to bring you a little further than the middle of the page. The date should be typed in full like this:
      February 1, 2009.
    • 4Four or five lines down from the date, at the left hand margin, type the name and address of the person you're sending the letter to. This portion of the letter is called the inside address. If the person you're addressing the letter to has a title, type his or her name first, then type in a comma, space once and type in the title, such as:
      Jamie L. Mulligan, Manager
    • 5Two lines down from the inside address, strike the "Tab" key seven times and type in the subject line. The subject line tells the recipient what the letter is about. In this case, it should look like this:
      Re: Verification of address
    • 6Two lines down from the subject line, type in the salutation. The salutation could be Dear Sir, Dear Ms. Mulligan, Gentlemen, or To Whom It May Concern (if you don't know the name of the contact person). The salutation should look like this:
      Dear Ms. Mulligan:
    • 7Two lines down from the salutation start the body of your letter five spaces in from left margin. The body of your letter should start out saying something such as:
      I am writing you this letter to verify that 101 Washington Street, Lynbrook, New York 11593 is the address I should ship your order to.
    • 8Two lines down from the body of your letter, after striking the "Tab" key seven times, type in a complimentary closing such as:
      Very truly yours, or
      Sincerely
    • 9Four lines down from the complimentary closing and in line with the complimentary closing, type your full name in, like this:
      Jamie L. Mulligan
    • 10Sign your name in the space between the complimentary closing and your typed name.
