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.

Stop deleted email address from popping up after you delete then when you create an email

In outlook android app, when we compose message and type a letter in TO box, so many email I'd will appear.
Most email id appearing there are frequently contacted and not contacts.
Hence, allow user to delete those unwanted contacts in android outlook app.
Web browser based outlook allows to delete, but not android outlook app.
This issue been reported few times.. but, no solution till date.
So, kindly feedback to coders to fix issue in android and iOS apps.

Please add this feature, I hate seeing a bunch of old random email contacts in my search page that I do not have as a saved contact.
"Deleting or editing cached contacts that are auto-suggested in TO field, this is a feature that is yet to be added to the Outlook for Android app. These are contacts that you may have contacted or contacted you in the past or even entered incorrectly. They are cached in the app and it cannot be removed at this time"

only lately have I seen this feature on both the web based and app versions of Outlook get initiated. it is really annoying that when I type in a name of a recipient, I get a whole suggested list of people I have never heard of. please stop it or have it such that only suggestions from saved contacts are suggested
Feature to Remove Outlook App Auto Complete
Shane Dowling commented
A contact changes email address and all reference to old address is amended in all address books. Despite this as you type in the To: field in Android Outlook it will still predict the old address, resulting in messages not arriving to correct destination.

this is a showstopper!
the app autocompletes email addresses, but won't allow you to delete old and dangerously incorrect mail addresses.
Help. A new councilperson has the same address as the old councilperson. When I try to address the new person, Hotmail corrects it to the old person even though I've deleted the old person from my contacts. I can't figure out how to email my new councilperson without insulting them or being ineffective.

The Android app has imported old autocomplete suggestions. Despite clearing these on the original device (pc), they are still appearing on my new unused app. This means that data I thought I had deleted for legal reasons is now reappearing. Please urgently introduce the option to Clear the Autocomplete and to toggle it on or off on the Android app.

I have a contact I have deleted for personal reasons. every email received, every email sent. But yet when I click search it pops up as the first suggestion. Very Very Stressful. please allow the ability to delete a suggestion from your algorithm. I would suggest that there are some privacy issues here as well in many jurisdictions , not allowing a user to delete information, storing information that has been deleted, processing information that has been deleted. I'm hoping you can prioritize without me having to escalate outside of this help, suggestion feature.

I think this would be a very helpful feature for people who simply wanted to remove a contact which they no longer needed or wanted. It just gets very messy after awhile. I would REALLY appreciate a feature like this, and I think most people would agree with me. Right?
Katie Simmonds commented
Cant believe they still have not fixed this its infuriating that past email addreses i have had contact with are getting saved along with there DELETED conversation history to? And with no way to delete ! If i go to contacts it tells me i have none so im confused.
Katie Simmonds commented
Email addreses that i have contacted in the past are being saved with there past deleted conversation history somewhere by outlook with no way to remove.

for example...I was sending myself a message and typed my email address without the (dot) that separates the first and last name and now everytime I try to send myself a message I have to make sure I select the right email address.
Philip White commented
The problem is that too many email addresses get aliased or spoofed by poor security in the shared contact list. This omitted functionality simply begs for exploitation by hackers.

An option to remove suggested contacts
Ed R commented
I don't want to see email addresses from people I dislike and who I never want to speak to again. And yet Outlook reminds me of these people by suggesting i use there email address when i start typing a letter in the TO field!!
Heather Wolford commented
some of the autofill emails are old or incorrect. it would be nice to be able to delete old emails from autofill
It really such a difficult programming problem that Microsoft engineers cannot solve? I lay down a challenge that somebody within the organisation fixes this infuriating problem!
