You mean it lists all the emails other people added to their contacts?

I didnt know you could.

The way i would do it is install it into a place on you user account, like in your documents, that way no one will be able to access that one,so they wont be able to see your email address


Hope this helps in some way

You can. Here's how:

Click Start -> Click control panel -> Click your username -> Click 'Manage my .NET passports' -> From here you can delete them.

I don't know whether you need administrator's rights to do this though...?

Hope this helps.
