How do I get rid of old email addresses that popup when starting to type a name in the address line. Every time one of these old addresses pops up, it's from the "auto complete" feature even though the address is no longer in my Contacts List.

    Hi Macaby: Try this: From the Menu bar in mail click Window > Previous Recipients, Form here you can delete as many of the old contacts as you wish.

    Hope this helps

    Wow, that works great. The list looks like it has everyone I've ever emailed for the past 2 years. I guess the only ones I really care about deleting are people I regularly email that have changed their addresses from whatever to whatever.

    Thanks for the tip!!!

    Hi: You're welcome, and thank you for the solved star. Yes, there are quite a collection of addresses that we have long since forgotten about hiding in there.
