Question: apple mail - how do I get it to stop autofill? When I try to type in an email address that is similar to one already in my address book, it automatically puts the one in the address book down. I want it to stop doing that! Frustrating!

Mail automatically autofills the address I send to with a similar one in my address book. I cannot get it to stop and can't send an email to the person I want unless I add them as a contact in my address book. While this is a work around it is not acceptable. I want to be able to manually put an email address in my mail and have it send to it.

iMac, OS X Yosemite (10.10.2), Time Capsule - Time Machine

According to this article : Safari for Mac: Use AutoFill for credit cards, contacts, and passwords in Safari

Choose Safari > Preferences, then click AutoFill.

To turn AutoFill off or on, select the information you want to include in AutoFill, deselect the rest.
