Delete Recent Email addresses from ipad

I am using an ipad air 2 with the os version up to date.  When i write emails on the ipad i am offered a long list of "recent" email addressees, many of them long out of date.  Is there any way to clean up or delete that "recents" list.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When you start typing their name, you will see a little blue icon on the right next to it. Click that, and you will see "Remove From Recents" in red text at the bottom of that menu (below Create New Contact and Add to Existing Contact)

Unfortunately this is a one-off type basis. (see screenshots below)

Thanks.  That is the only solution I could see as well and it never ends.  So I think I will put up with it for now.
