Need option for disabling "Other Suggestions" for email addresses
I like to have autocomplete but hate the "Other Suggestions". I am unable to find a way to disable that. It is VERY counterproductive, especially for emails that are no longer valid and I don't get option to remove it
100% agree it's very frustrating when Microsoft introduce these new features which frustrate end users and don't give any way of controlling them or turning them off!
The user should have control on what autocomplete service he wants to use. The best would be to have separate settings for "Recent People" (on/off, and keep the possibility to remove entries), and for "Other Suggestions" with 3 options:
- always display other suggestions,
- do not display other suggestions,
- display other suggestions after click on "other suggestions.."
This feature somehow sucked up my other personal email addresses outside of my work account. I can only think this was sucked up from my iOS Outlook app. I have contact privacy settings to prevent Outlook app from accessing my contacts yet there they are , all my PRIVATE PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESSES!
My other suggestions-list gives many time old or not correcte e-mailadresses. This is very confussing. Please give u a way to delete these!

This feature is a terrible idea likely to produce unintended mayhem.
Please kill it.

I agree! I see in the Help file that is specifically always on.
This is so very confusing, and the Other Suggestions is almost always incorrect and has caused us to send confidential emails to the wrong person. My Executive Director has been particularly affected by this, and she is pretty tech-savvy and also always rushed. It's too easy to make a mistake.

Also a Problem here.
We have some similar e-mail addresses in our company. This "other suggestions" option is responsible for the fact that our users always send e-mails to the wrong address.
There should be a method to delete an email address that exits in "other suggestions", this would be very helpful to keeping the email address productive.
EXACTLY - VERY COUNTERPRODUCTIVE ALSO INCREASED RISK OF SENDING TO WRONG RECEIPIENTS!!!
Pointless inclusion. Very annoying that this cannot be disabled separately from Autocomplete and its a headache to clear entries for which 9/10 times isn't possible and not a simple user-friendly job to start with.
I wish I could delete "other suggested" email addresses
