    help! how to get rid of msn contacts in outlook when online

    hi:

    i have a bunch of you on my msn and a bunch of other people as well

    the problem i have is when i sign in to msn, it puts all my contacts in my work outlook express and office outlook address folder.

    i am using messanger 6 and have checked do not store address book on this computer

    as soon as i sign out the email addresses dissapear.

    i do not want to see these addresses at all
    i sign in all day at work and this erritatres the hell outta me

    it was fine up to yesterday.

    nothing worse than scrllong through dozens of email addresses looking for a work email address.

    this suxor my nutsor


    any ideas would be rewarded with spam or nothing....
    it's up to you

    thanks

    It is a Microsoft "Must Have" Egg. One of the perks they say you get when you use 6.0. Supposed to be a fix for it in September from M$ but you know how good M$ is about timely releases, lol. My understanding is it is possible to remove the feature through the Outlook Registry, but it is not a complete solution as other filters are also removed. The only known fix I know of that really works is if you create an unattended install CD and re-create the registry before the final burn. But thats a pain in the arse IMHO.

    Just to check,

    You have clicked tools, options, privacy tab,
    and clicked, this is a shared computer so don't display my tabs, and don't store my addresses?


    Well I just tried it, and it doesn't display them, but they are there still. They are in the drop down arrows that you have to click to view, but they are still viewable.

    This is strange. Surely there must be a way to hide them from prying eyes.

    Yea, bothersome really. About two to three weeks ago M$ did this with MSN 6, so thats why the "all-of-a-sudden" problem. It was around the news channels and ZDNet barked about it. Something that kinda got burried under some earth shattering news about a GD worm. LOL

    i never installed anything to update messanger 6 except for windows update...

    but it was still 1 day before the odd change in messanger?...?

    my co-worker does not have this problem....



    it's so annoying.
