Outlook Online Guest Contact

Not applicable


I have a contact I can't delete in Office 365. The contact shows up as a "Guest" with a little globe icon by it. The contact is not in any of my Outlook contact lists. Does anyone know how this kind of contact is created? Screenshot here:

That's an external user someone invited to your tenant. Only admins can remove it, once added.


That's what I thought. Do you have any idea how to delete them? There is no option from the admin portal when finding them in guest users. The problem is that the email address is wrong for the display name and it's causing some users grief when emailing that person. Microsoft support didn't know how, just suggested that we run the Outlook MFCMAPI program to delete it, but this doesn't sound right?


Figured it out.  Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName "ExternalName_domain#EXT#@domain" | Remove-MsolUser
