Ability to Delete a Suggested Contact on Search Tab
The contacts on the screen when on the search tab are annoying and sometimes I’d like to delete one.

The system picks up contacts which aren’t always right which I want to delete and add manually to correct it but you have no way of deleting auto added contacts
Please add a feature where you can delete suggested contacts from the search section. Half of the suggestions are deleted contacts on mine.

there should be an option to delete suggested contacts
There should be an option to delete past contacts that automatically come up on the search page.

Totally ridiculous that this is even an issue. This should have been in the program from conception. Shame on the developers. Fix this already! I have to send out an email to the wrong name because I can't edit or delete. Think of the poor person who has had the job for over a year and yet I send HIS email to HER name.
I requsted the support desk to help me to change and or delete te information in contacts that pop up as contact suggestions. But they told me that is not possible.
See text below.
I would suggest to built in this functionality.
Sorry, but the app doesn't have the function to delete them as they are being fetched from the previous communication or history. You can post about having this feature through our user voice forum (Outlook Settings-> Help & Feedback-> Suggest a Feature)
For any assistance with the Outlook in the future, you know where to find us. Thank you!
Enable the ability to delete suggested email contact. In my example, I’ve changed employers but my prior work email address always suggests itself when I draft a new email but I am unable to remove it
another suggestion for the same feature that has 1117 votes and was first filed in 2015
I’d like the option to delete or edit suggested contacts in the mobile app feature. I’ve changed jobs at my workplace and it doesn’t make sense for my previous colleagues to be the ones that show up each time.
We need to remove certain people from our life and we need to start with erasing the suggestion contacts
When I start a new email the suggested contacts that come up include old, out dated and incorrect contacts that I have had but which are no longer available or required. I cannot edit or remove them. Why not??

i agree with this and wsnt to turn off history or delete it!!
An option to delete your recepients history would help get rid of traces of interaction with that address. I have unwanted (previous) contacts that appear whenever I’m on the search area, and these are the names/addresses I don’t want to see anymore.
