Hi,
I use regular, free hotmail. All contacts in my CONTACTS list are ok. But if I click forward button to forward an email, then click on the TO button to see the dropdown list of contacts, there are 4 porn sounding names without addresses at the bottom of the list , under the legit contacts. I can't find any way to delete them as these are not in the regular CONTACTS list. First it was only one, but about every 2 weeks a new phantom entry shows up.
Can someone explain this and provide a solution. Wipe and restart fresh is NOT a solution. Thanks.

On the left hand side go all the way down to the bottom where you see Home.

Click on Contacts.

AS I SAID,
these phantom contacts ARE NOT in regular contact list, only in the dropdown list, under persons tab when clicking the TO button when composing/forwarding.

There does not seem to be addresses associated with the names. All the other names in the list have addresses following the name except these. Will give your suggestion a try. Cheers!

EDIT: Nope, names still there. "DrunkGirlRoom" and "HornyGirlHere" iun bold type, at the bottom of the list, wiuthout email addresses.

Can you take a screenshot of both the contacts list and the drop down menu?

Here is how I fixed it. I sent the rouge contacts a forward and included one of my other email addresses in the CC. I checked that email in a non hotmail address. It had the email addresses of the contact names exposed. They are all Windows Live Messenger Groups. I went back and signed into Hotmail, went to Messenger, and buried in Group Invites were the rouge contacts. as unanswered invites. I declined the invites and VIOLA, they were gone from the TO button dropdown menu.
Adios
