    My outlook 2013 automatically creates email contacts when I receive an email with multiple people in the recipients bar. The results are that I have 1800 contacts including people I have never heard of. I sync with Icloud through an Imap system. I have contacted Apple and Microsoft. Apple says the settings are in the Outlook and Microsoft said they couldn't assist me and that I should try the forums. Help!

    When you receive? Are you sure? IIRC, it only creates contacts using the email addresses you send email to. Of course that means if you forwarded an email that had 1,000 email addresses in it, all 1,000 of those email addresses would be added to your contacts. :eek:

    Thanks for the reply. I believe it only emails I receive. I don't forward many and not to the email addresses that are showing up in my contacts. I understand in outlook 2010 there was a setting you could turn off, but not in 2013. Just what I heard, I don't know how factual it is.
