Delete auto fill addresses
Hi, I'd like to be able to delete autofill addresses. For example, I accidentally used an old address for my wife. The address is no longer valid but it appears at the top of my autofill list thereby inviting errors by my clumsy fingers.

The workaround (here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_outlook-mso_imobile-mso_mobapps/deleting-an-entry-from-the-autocomplete-list-of/55431770-7d6b-43af-a038-fa176850d127) works ... but only temporarily: every time the app updates, the old autocomplete entry reappears. C'mon MS ... just fix it already. It's not that hard, and you have clever enough people to do it very quickly.
Ditto to everything. I’ve inadvertently emailed the wrong address on multiple occasions. When I start typing an address, it gives suggestions of people I hardly ever contact, but the people I email a dozen times a day are only visible after clicking ‘from other contacts’. Because of this, I’ve emailed people at their alternative address (not realizing autofill wasn’t filling in address I use constantly) and they don’t see my message. Why wouldn’t autofill the address I use 99% of the time?

I agree. This is making us reconsider microsoft 365 and outlook on ios as we wouodnt get this autcomplete problem on google gsuite.
yep, what they said...
Please fix the new way of choosing email addresses in the iOS Outlook app. It is really a pain now, and I'm considering going back to Apple original mail and calendar apps because of this. The problems are:
- Old email addresses cannot be deleted, so I'm constantly proposed to choose an email address that the app autocorrected and which is therefore wrong.
- The new update means that whenever I have to choose a frequently used email address, I have 2 extra clicks, because I have to open the organisation first and then scroll down to find the right one.
Please, please, please just make it easy to write to emails which are used often.
Please fix this!!! So annoying!!
Auto complete/Autofill email addresses pop up with all the addresses from every spam email I am sent. Very annoying and insecure!
Please fix ASAP
This is especially a problem when you change employment
Fix this now ! Please !
this needs to be fixed
The suggestion system works poorly on iOS. Unless it improves ill have to go back to apple mail which has a much cleaner name suggestion system.
Make sure that suggestions that are available in participants can be removed because they remain forever and we find our own contacts more
it would be great if I could edit or delete some auto fill addresses; my old name keeps showing up when I send emails to myself or others.
I agree with these comments. I cleared all of the garbage addresses from my home computer version of outlook, and was surprised that this did not sync to the app version even after removing and re installing the outlook app. It’s hard to believe that we have to ask for a functionality that seems so obvious to all of your users. Please implement the option to clear out recommended email addresses.
If you delete and reinstall the app, won’t all the files saved be deleted too?

When creating an email in Outlook for iPhone. Outlook suggests a list of email addresses (stored in cache) according to the first characters entered in the A, cc or bcc zones. The problem is that the email addresses offered by Outlook are often old email addresses that are no longer used or addresses that have been misspelled. This means that you have to scroll through the addresses each time to find the correct one. This can even lead to selection errors.
Example: I often send emails from the iPhone to receive them on my PC. I have already changed my email address several times and unfortunately I have made spelling mistakes in some addresses. In addition, I have family members who have strong addresses similar to my email address. Which means I have to travel to a large list of email addresses. The only solution is to enter the entire email address letter by letter.
Outlook for iPhone should offer a solution to delete email addresses that are no longer used as it exists in Outlook 365 on my Windows 10 PC.
Could you solve this problem?
thank you in advance

Also the algorithm does not seem to be smart enough to understand which emails starting with the same name that gets emailed the most. Most emails should mean top of the list

Amazing that this functionality is not available yet. It feels like a hygienic. Please implement.
This issue needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. Prioritization of recently used addresses above current addresses in the outlook address book with no option to override the older address is very frustrating.
When a new email is created and you start typing in the To box a list of email addresses pops up.
There needs to be a way for users to clean this up. It contains invalid email addresses that no longer exist, addresses created from spam emails received, unmonitored addresses from emails such as order confirmations, and addresses used one time that will never be used again.
Delete email suggestions. Putting in an email I get 15 to 30 emails that are fake or not correct and have to scroll all the way down to my true contact email I’ve tried removing the contact and making a new contact and please add on the ability to remove these auto suggestions as it’s extremely frustrating and takes forever to scroll to the correct address and it limits you to be able to see the whole address so it’s a very hard oversight to deal with.
