    My brother's email address changed, so I updated it on Outlook and my iPhone. However, every time I start to type his name in the TO field, the iPhone brings up his old email address (with the new address). I have deleted his old email off of my Outlook contacts database, and I've even gone under "settings", "general", "reset" and reset keyboard dictionary. But it still shows up!!! Anyone else have this issue or have any ideas to fix this???

    I was about to start the same thread! My folks changed ISPs, so I had to update their addresses. Still, the mail app keeps wanting to use their old addresses.

    I did some Googling and it seems this is a pretty common issue for people. However, it also seems the only solution is to either restore from a backup that predates the use of the old email address or restore as a new phone. Either of those options are more trouble than they're worth, in my opinion.
