  1. Spurious address suggestions in Windows Mail


    I have a problem with Windows 10 Mail that must be easily solvable, but I can’t find the way!

    Whilst composing an email, when I type a name into the ‘To’ box, Mail suggests some names.

    The trouble is that it includes some obsolete addresses that I’ve used before, but not saved anywhere to the best of my knowledge, and which are not in my People App. Where is it getting them from and how can I stop it??

    :)

    Mail App: Removing drop down email address suggestions


    I'm not a big fan of the MS Mail program and don't really use it for serious stuff but somehow or other if I create a new email then as I start to enter the recipients address a whole load of suggestions will appear. I don't have any contacts in the People app so I'm not sure where these come from.

    The question is how can I clear this list so that I no longer get the suggestions?

    Thanks

    Win10 Mail - where's the address book?


    That’s now the People app. Spurious address suggestions in Windows Mail :)
    If you know the contact's name or email address & they’re listed in the People app, you can start typing the first few letters of their name or email address and Mail for Windows 10 will suggest matching contacts.

    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?
