How to Delete the Recently Sent Email Addresses from Hotmail

Hotmail, also known as Windows Live Hotmail, is a free web-based email service developed by Microsoft. Like other email services, Hotmail stores a list of all email addresses you have communicated with. For various reasons, some email users may want to delete from their Hotmail account the email address of someone they recently sent an email to. Although it is not possible to delete email addresses from your stored contact list, you can delete them from the recently sent list in the "To" field so they will not appear with your contacts while composing an email.
