  2. Those addresses are ones you recently sent to, and they are stored in
    a key in the registry.
    Unless you are familiar with editing the registry, I would
    advise you to ignore the problem for now. Eventually
    the unwanted addresses will drop off the remembered list.
    If you are proficient with registry editing, the pertinent key is:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Recently Used Addresses

    Is there some way to turn that option off?

    It is really really annoying having all those irrelevant addresses pop up.

    How long is "eventually"?

  4. No, you can't turn it off, although I suppose you could do a one-time
    mass purge by deleting that registry key.

    The more new addresses you send to, the faster the old ones drop off
    the remembered list. I think the list holds a maximum of 29 addresses.
