Dear Computer Lady,
I have Win. XP and I use a cable modem that uses outlook express for the e-mail. I’m having problems with my outlook express auto – populating my address book. How do you shut of the auto – populate feature?
There is an option in Outlook express that automatically adds people you reply to in your address book. All you have to do is turn this option off. Here is how:
1. In Outlook Express, click on “Tools” and then “Options”.
2. In the “Options” window, click on the “Send” tab.
3. On the “Send” page, under the “Sending” section, look for the line that says, “Automatically put people I reply to in my Address Book” Click once to remove the check mark from that line.
4. Click “OK” and you will be done.
