    A friend used my Mac a month ago and his email address often comes up in my FROM: email field. I am the default but I must hit it every once in a while and his email address is selected. When my recipient gets my message it's says it's from HIM. How can I delete his name so it isn't a choice in the FROM: email field? I looked in Mail preferences and his email address is NOT listen next to mine under Preferences>Accounts.

    Please not this isn't happening in the TO: field. For that I'd just choose WINDOW>Previous Recipients>Delete.

    Thanks in advance.

    Similar Issue

    I have a similar issue. Following an importing of some mail, I have an address on offer for the "from" field, that is not in fact an account that I have set up. I want to remove it, but cannot figure out how. Any ideas?

    Do you have only one Mail account, or is your friend's still there? If so: delete it.
