Default Distribution List Conflict

I set up a distribution list in Outlook and gave it a name.

Then I needed to remove one email address from the distribution list. Since
I couldn't figure out how to remove one email address from the list, I just
deleted the list and created a new list using the same name.

My outlook auto-fills previously entered email addresses in the To field and
now whenever it auto-fills the distribution list name, it says that
distribution list is no longer valid. This is most likely happening because
the distribution list I deleted had the same name as the new one I replaced
it with.

How do I fix this so that when it auto-fills the distribution list name, it
sends the email to the new distribution list? I want to avoid using a
different distribution list name if at all possible.

Default Distribution List Conflict

Whenever you change a DL you must also remove its entry from the
autocompletion cache. When it appears on the suggested names list, highlight
it with your arrow key and hit Delete.

If you delete the autocomplete entry, everything should be back to normal.

To remove a member from a DL, use the Remove command. If you need further
assistance, please give your Outlook version.

I am using Outlook 2007. Can you please tell me how to add new members and
remove existing members from a distribution list?

Thank you.

She already did:
To remove a member: select the member hit the Remove button on the Ribbon
To add a member: Hit "Select Members" or "Add New" on the Ribbon
