Whenever I use icloud.com for email I have a problem with autofill.  For instance, whenever I try to email my wife autofill/autocomplete suggests every conceivable permutation of email addresses that have been sent to her.  If I type her name, it includes every email address she has ever had PLUS every combination of her address plus other people I sent in a group email.  The default email address is to her and a real estate agent from 3 years ago!  Also troubling is that email addresses from an old job continue to pop up.  If I'm trying to email a person named "Todd" an email it will immediately pull up "Todd" from my old company.  If I'm not careful I could be sending email to the wrong people constantly.


How do you fix this specifically for icloud.com?

In Mail check the Window Menu>Previous Recipients - you may find these unwanted email addresses listed there. There is a button to remove all those you don't need (likely most of them).
