  2. Mail in Windows 10 - incorrect email address suggestion

    When I create a new message and start to type an address a list of suggestions pops up. The top one is incorrect and I want to delete it but it does NOT appear in my contacts. How can I get rid of it?

  3. How to delete an obsolete or incorrect email address in Windows 10 Mail

    In Windows 10 mail, how do you delete an email address from the drop down list that pops up? I've got both outdated and incorrectly spelled email addresses that pop up. I've tried going in to People, but there's nothing there.

    In Outlook it was possible, but now with Mail, hitting delete does nothing. Thanks for your help.

    Obsolete email addreses offered in auto-complete in Win 10 mail

    Thanks.



    The point of my query was to ask why People app and Win 10 Mail are NOT fully synchronised. I now understand that:



    • People app and Win 10 Mail do not share a common database and are therefore not fully synchronised.
    • Win 10 Mail has its own database in the registry, and this database is not user-accessible.
    • Obsolete and incorrect email addresses will remain in the Win 10 Mail app’s contact list, even when deleted from the People app, and will continue to be offered as valid addresses in the drop down prompt list. This is a ‘feature’ of Win 10 Mail.
    • Since there is no way to delete obsolete addresses from Win 10 Mail app, old and incorrect addresses will accumulate over time and render the app unusable.
    • Microsoft are aware of this issue and have elected to leave it unresolved. The ‘fix’ is to stop using Win 10 Mail.
