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 The address is no longer valid but it appears at the top of my autofill list thereby inviting errors by my clumsy fingers.
This is been an issue now for about three years, people have been writing about it and they have done nothing about it. Either they don’t care or they don’t know how to fix it
Hello *****! Thank you for reaching out.
If you are referring to the list that shows up suggesting the contacts or email addresses you recently interacted with, unfortunately, we do not have the option to delete the auto suggested contacts in the app for now.
But please help us make Outlook better by suggesting it as a feature if you think that would be a nice addition.
Just go to Settings -> Help and Feedback -> Suggest a Feature. Developments are made based on the statistics generated by the users in this area, so don't forget to voice your wishes there! Thank you.
I hate those years old contacts that follow me in that Outlook search... useless obsolete bisness contacts and idiots I want nothing to do with, all deleted long ago or never been in my Addressbook... it's always those same addresses year after year. Useless.
Hey you should be able to delete your previous emailed from auto showing as you type an email. For example if you type to email ‘da’ it brings up previous addresses you have emailed that includes ‘da’. You should be able to delete history
suddenly, memorized contacts that i had deleted months ago, disappeared from my outlook mobile app. No idea why. Has anyone else seen this?
When you move the cursor to the email address entering mode, e.g. To:, Outlook provides a list of suggested email addresses which may no longer be relevant.
Currently there is no way to delete a suggested email - these pop up automatically even those that were accidentally used in the past (bc is typos etc) and evening appear ahead of legitimate email addresses. This leads to many misdirected emails esp on the app bc text is small. It’s a problem on the app and the web platform.
I should have been more detailed on my previous suggestion. The auto fill pops up when you begin to write a message. I’m using the outlook app on iPhone 11 and some of the addresses are old or incorrect. I have been in touch with customer service and they informed me that there was no way currently to do this and suggested I write to you. Thank you.
When I start a new email be auto fill addresses appear. Many of them are old and some are wrong. There needs to be a way to delete auto fill addresses
Please please. Do the right thing and fix this. Don’t make me test my entire phone

There should be a feature to allow Edit / remove auto email addresses.
email addresses regularly go out of date, but according to MSFY support there is no way to delete them from auto fill once they are learned. please return the capability to delete them.
This happens often and for an email that I have not used in more than 2 years and has been removed from my contacts for 2 years.
We need to be able to delete them auto fill addresses with circles and initials
Remove autocomplete contact suggestions from the to: field when composing an email in the iPhone Hotmail app

You merged my suggestion with an existing one but my suggestion is a different one. I'm not talking deleting autocomplete suggestions for email addresses when creating a new email or replying.
Instead I am referring to the Search tab where some Contacts are shown on top in a row. There should be an option to delete those.

The suggested contacts on the Search tab make no sense. They have no relationship to the frequently used contacts.
Suggestion: give option to remove all or some of the suggested contacts
Should be able to delete autocomplete addresses. For example, I have typos I so e addresses and they keep coming up resulting often in emailing the incorrect address. Can delete them via the computer but that doesn’t eliminate them in the app.
Not being able to delete/edit or turn off autofill of email addresses is making Outlook on iPhone unusable for me.
I will be migrating to another app.
When i start typing a name in the “to” line of an email i get a list of remembered addresses to choose from. I am seeing extra email addresses that are not associated to any of my contacts, but rather were from phishing scams that used one of my contacts names. I see that the email address is nothing like what it should be for that contact and cannot find a way to remove it.
Also one address is no longer valid and i have deleted it from that contact, yet it keeps showing up too.
How can i remove these unwanted addresses?
I am using the Outlook App on my iPhone 7.
There is no option to clear the suggested contacts as of this time, when composing correspondence.
This causes an ongoing issue of allowing incorrect or outdated email addresses to autofill into outgoing correspondence.
This Results in the email not being delivered.
It forces you to retype the full email address in order to insure proper delivery.
Please correct this issue.
This feature exists on the desktop and web based versions. It does not carry through to the mobile app.
