Auto suggest brings up contact emails that I know are no longer valid. Needs also to put most frequently used at the top. currently puts most recent at bottom, and multiple unwanted email suggestions at top.
So, you're still "working on it's after 3 years?

Trying to add an Email to address book, searched on Bing and steps outlined that I go to the settings tab, however that feature is not found in the settings tab as I am yet to locate it on my Android outlook app. But if it does exist on your end, then make it more accessible. Cause it's pretty hard to find. it could have a separate option on the menu for easy user experience and could also be placed in accounts page. However way you choose to go about it. It should be made easy to access just like everything else

I have an incorrectly added contact and can't find it to edit. It automatically adds itself to the "send to" when I'm composing, but since I originally input it with a .con and not a .com, it won't send. When I use the search feature, I see this contact, but there's no way to select it to edit, it only inserts itself into a new email.
I also have one who died and would like to remove it, but I can't get to it.
Why are we not allowed to easily edit/remove our contacts? It's ridiculously short-sighted.

outlook app does not allow to delete frequently contacted email I'd when composing new message in outlook app.
this is causing inconvenience.
web browser based outlook allows to delete.
android app does not allow.
so, pls check and fix android app to allow users to delete unwanted frequently contacted email I'd.
this issue existed since long and never fixed.

Support tells me I can't get rid of it, which I find hard to believe. May need to switch to a different mail app on my phone.

I don't get any errors I just can't edit a contact's notes with 20+ lines. It won't add the key strokes. The search issue is if you have a contact called Apple ID/iTunes and search just iTunes it won't find it.
Philip White commented
The number of contact list sources that are getting redundantly mixed together has become very unmanageable. There needs to be a way to control where they are coming from and functionality or links for editing them.
