Deleting a "Hidden" contact

R

Richard A. King

I start Windows Live Messenger, sign in and my 4 contacts are shown. If I
then click on Spaces and login to My Space, Interent Explorer starts, as
expected.
If I go to Invite A Friend there are 5 contacts shown. The extra on is a
hotmail address I stupidly replied to from a web-page sometime ago. How do I
delete this contact. As I said it does not show in Messenger.

Greetings Richard,

You probably only have Messenger set to show you 'Messenger contacts'.

Just start typing in the address in the Messenger 'Find a contact...' field, it should come
up and you can delete it there. The search ignores the filtering setting.

Thanks Jonathan,

I have "Show All Contacts" set, but the contact does not show in Messenger.
In Spaces it shows as a Messenger contact. I have also tried the steps
described in "Clearing Contacts Cache" in online help, but the contact is
still in Spaces
