    I've emailed a couple of businesses and now they seem to be in my email contacts(even though I didn't add it). Does anyone know how to get rid of them?

    I thought the same thing. However, maybe if you deleted the account and made an account again?

    That's crazy. Are they in the Contacts app?

    Edit: I decided to write an email to test, and no it doesn't put them in the Contacts app. So, it's pretty weird if you delete the email account, you still get the same contacts when you reopen the account.

    Does it add them as actual contacts, or filter when you're writing an email address to actually email? Because the former is weird, that's never happened to me.

    ah yes, I know what you mean. I've been trying to get rid of the email with my wife's maiden name. I haven't been able to figure this out. Hope there's a way!:D
