How can I refresh the address list cache in Outlook 2010? Some addresses aren't showing up.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. Your issue is addresses are not showing and you are asking how to delete them? – Dave May 22 '13 at 9:11

Are you talking about the global address book or the auto complete? – Dave May 22 '13 at 9:48

In Outlook 2010, select the File tab in the upper left corner, then Download Address Book from the Account Settings drop down menu.

Outlook 2007 users should select Tools from Outlook's uppermost menu, then Send/Receive and Download Address Book from the Tools drop down menus.

The Offline Address Book window will appear. Make sure the following options are selected:
De-check the Download changes since last Send/Receive option
Make sure Full Details is selected
Make sure the \Global Address List is selected from the Choose address book drop down menu

Click the OK button at the bottom. The most recent version of the Global Address List will be downloaded from the CUMC IT Exchange server. You may see a status window indicating the download's progress, it will automatically disappear when completed.

Close Outlook when the download has finished. Re-open Outlook and log in; the Global Address List should now contain the most recent information.
