Default How to disable the list of suggested email addresses provided by Hotmail

Hello,

When you compose a new email in Hotmail their web page may suggest a large number of email addresses to you as you are typing email addresses into the To: field. Although it is not possible to disable this behavior, even by disabling auto-complete in your web browser, it is possible to significantly limit the number of suggested email addresses by following these steps :
  • Go to the top right of your Hotmail inbox and click Options
Name:  Hotmail Options.JPG
Views: 7083
Size:  4.1 KB
  • Under Customizing Hotmail select Advanced Privacy Settings

  • Click the radio button for Only suggest people in my contact list

  • Click Save
Going forward only contacts, and not email addresses that you have corresponded with, will be suggested by hotmail when composing a new email.

That is a decent reply. In fact, I think you are correct in saying that if you following the procedure outlined that the contacts will be removed from the To: box.

I appreciate your time in response. I can assure there is no harm or wrong doing coming about as a result of your advice,

Later,
