    Vorgeschlagene weitere E-Mail Adressen löschen oder editieren können

    Im E-Mail Editor werden einem Mail Adressen vorgeschlagen, wenn man beginnt einen Namen zu schreiben. Zum Teil kommen diese aus der Auto Vervollständigungsliste, diese Adressen kann man auch löschen, wenn sie z.B. falsch oder nicht mehr Aktuell sind. Als zweite Option gibts es “weitere Vorschläge” alle Mail Adressen die hier erscheinen können nicht gelöscht oder bearbeitet werden. Hat man hier im Verlauf eine falsche Mail Adresse bei, ist man dazu verdammt aufzupassen, welche Adresse man wählt… Das ist sshr nervig und führt bei mir häufig zu Rückläufern oder zu Rückmeldungen abgelehnt Mail Adresse nicht bekannt…. Diese Vorschläge sollte man aus dem Verlauf/Cache zumindest löschen können, editieren wäre natürlich noch besser.

    Suggested additional e-mail addresses can be deleted or edited

    In the E-Mail Editor, addresses are suggested to a mail when you start to write a name. In part, these come from the Auto Completion List, these addresses can also be deleted if they are e.g. wrong or no longer current. As a second option, there are "other suggestions" all mail addresses that appear here can not be deleted or edited. If you have a wrong mail address in the course, you are damned to pay attention to which address you choose ... This is annoying and often leads to returns or feedback rejected mail address unknown .... You should at least be able to delete these suggestions from the history / cache, but editing would be even better.

    Please optimize:

    1. Allow removal of "suggested contacts"
    2. Allow deactivation of "suggested contacts"
    3. Allow deactivation of "last contacts" (as possible now)
    4. Allow empty of "suggested contacts"
    5. Allow empty of "last contacts" (as possible now)

    To clarify this a bit further... it no longer seems possible to remove entries from the "Suggestions" that show up when you start typing a name in the "To" field of a message. The "X" that every piece of documentation tells you to use does not appear next to the entry. Clearing AutoComplete cache doesn't have any effect.

    This has become a serious problem for some of my users, as they are accidentally emailing personal addresses instead of company addresses.
