Does anyone know how to clear the autocomplete/cached addresses from a users mailbox in Exchange 2010 OWA? I've cleared the address from the N2K cache on their local machine, but it still shows via OWA.

It's similar to this problem here: Exchange mail users cannot send to certain lists

Bring up a new email in OWA, start to type the offending address, when it come's up, hit delete. That should clear it.

Perfect...I'm on a mac so I needed to do fn + delete to issue the same key command as delete on a windows keyboard. Hopefully this extra bit of info will help out someone. – st3v3o Feb 23 '11 at 21:52
