From time to time, coworkers send messages from their personal e-mail accounts. Entourage likes to store and suggest these addresses when composing messages in the future. This is great, except that it inevitably leads to work-related messages being sent to personal addresses. Is there any way to either disable this behavior (only suggest LDAP-linked addresses?) or flush Entourage's memory of this

Entourage X, 2004 and 2008: To clear ALL there is a preference in Mail & News: Compose: Clear List button. There is also an option in the preferences to disable this feature all together.

To clear a single address, add it exactly like the one that is remembered to your address book and mark it as Junk (or assign category Junk). You can just delete the address, but if you receive it again it will just be added back. Marking as junk will permanently remove it from the AutoComplete list.

I don't have a Mac here to verify this, but it looks like the database for nicknames is stored here:

~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Office 2004 Identities/[name of your identity; typically "Main Identity"], where "~" represents your home directory.

I don't know about only forcing it to suggest LDAP-only addresses, but this should allow you to edit the nicknames in there.
