Hi all,

I am trying to get rid of many incorrect e-mail addresses that pop up when you type in someone’s name in ‘To’ box e.g. when you type in Jakub it comes up with various e-mail addresses for Jakub many of which are not correct. It doesn't give us the option to delete it as for example in Hotmail where there is a cross next to it. All these incorrect e-mail addresses are not in the address book. Would anyone happen to know how to get rid of them?
Many Thanks

What OS are you on? And is this within the web mail login or from within a particular email client like Outlook or Mail?

This will seem very arcane, but it is the way. Compose a new message, when the address you would like to remove comes up, select it, copy it, then add it to your contacts (address book) after that delete it from your address book. It should no longer show up in the autocomplete.
