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 The address is no longer valid but it appears at the top of my autofill list thereby inviting errors by my clumsy fingers.
I’m moving back to gmail
And invite everyone to move to gmail.
They are really better than MS.
I’m jocking !!! But sometimes I really thing about it !
Ability to delete auto fill addresses when writing and e-mail. Frequent contacts can get pushed down farther in the list and worse, the wrong person can get an e-mail if you’re not careful, ha ha. A simple delete box would help. Thanks.

To be able to delete easily the emails suggestions. It is terrible when they are wrong !!
Unbelievable that this option does not exist. Outlook is almost unusable for me due to all of the invalid email addresses that are cached.
Totally ridiculous that this hasn’t been fixed! I may ditch my Outlook subscription and just use gmail:(
Are you kidding me? Finally bothered to look how to delete this autocomplete “help” and there isn’t anything? Blech
When I send an email and start to type a contact address outlook gives me a list of options. For some contacts I have old addresses that are showing up in this list. I would like to delete them from the list or have some way of clearing this cache
Incorrectly types email addresses are stored in autocomplete and cannot be deleted. Many people on line in forums complain about this.
It is something that needs to be addressed. I fir one will change to another email system if it cannot be remedied.

Yeh this is so frustrating. I don’t want suggestions of my typo email addresses and old email addresses
OMG please fix this!! my last name has 14 letters and once i forgot to add the "i" to my last name when emailing myself and now it comes up every single time and I forget about it until i get the "undeliverable mail" email. It is SOOOOO frustrating especially when i have used my work email address and had a list of people. I never get the replies.

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.
