allow deletion of autofill contacts. it is dangerous to have no way of deleting old email contacts in the autofill feature.
i need to be able to delete incorrect old email addresses from the autofill list. i have sent confidential stuff to a person's old company.

email addresses that have been written incorrectly are undeleteable. just would like to press the address with an option to delete it permanently
Natalija Klisura commented
have the option to remove selected emails from autofill so they don't come up as you start typing
Daniel Norwick commented
that this issue appears not to be fixed sounds highly alarming from a data governance perspective. for what legitimate reason does your company need to retain information about email accounts associated with your users if the users have deleted those emails and no longer wish them to be associated with their account?
let alone the detriment is causes users from a functionality perspective; it is bound to lead to misdirected emails and to slow down users who do want to use an effective autocomplete function

wading through all the people I've ever emailed to populate the To: field is not productive and partly negates the speed the Contacts should provide.

Urgent. I have a malicious email address in my cached email addresses that I can't remove. I may have inadvertently sent sensitive information to this email address because it is very similar to a legitimate email address I frequently use and it rises to the top of the cached email addresses when I start to type this person's email. Please make a tool that will allow me to edit cached email addresses so I can get rid of this threat.

when I type ex. gka...in the To: address bar, a list of gka...addresses of people I don't know appears that I cannot delete. No idea how they got there either.

I want to be able to delete these automatic suggestions not only when I type a new email message (which I've already figured out how to do), but I want to delete them ENTIRELY. That means I do not want these automatic suggestions on ANY search bar on Outlook. I thought I had gotten rid of them, but noooooo ... Outlook hit me with the surprise of hitting me when addresses that aren't even in my contacts on the MAIN search bar, and there's nothing I can do to get rid of them!! This is super annoying to me as I have some addresses that I'm really not using anymore and do not want anymore.
If you want to suggestions as you're typing a message, however, do it from your desktop computer. As you type the address, click the X button to the right of any address you want and it will be gone, even on the app. However, it will still appear on the main search bar and I have not been able to get rid of it yet.

It is silly that you can't just tap and hold the old email when auto fill pops up and have a delete option. So many people change their emails and I can't keep track which one is the old when they all pop up. I've sent lots of emails to old addresses. Please make deleting autofill contacts an option!
I found this if anyone wants to try it:

it should be urgent, old e-mail contact suggested if wrong can cause lot of problems, all the time I send one e-mail, I have to spend time looking for the right one, instead of make a correct use of this function. pleas correct that, and allow us to delete the contacts suggested by the e-mail in order to avoid more problems.
I just spent several hours trying to resolve this issue by deleting incorrect entries from OWA, setting up the account from scratch on a spare phone, deleting all sent emails with incorrect address, etc. Nothing works. The incorrect email addresses are still present in the autocomplete on Outlook for Android.

I've been battling for a year with support over this issue. Every time I get a new support member about it they have no idea what I'm talking about. Fix this issue you dummies

This is only affecting my Android outlook account, not showing on my laptop version

allow me to remove/delete unwanted/incorrect email address from the auto fill memory.
Problem:- outlook has "saved" the WRONG email address, so each and EVERY time I enter the first few letters it doesn't offer me the address that I actually want.
Victoria Morgan commented
The option to remove the "suggested" email addresses when you start typing a name in the "to" field should be added. There are people I do not know, I see their email addresses and photo, I don't want to accidentally send an email to them. They are not in my contacts list, so please add the option to remove the auto-suggested email addresses.

allow me to clear auto complete email suggestions in mobile app. the first ones that come up are using my name and a foreign email address.
