    Hi all, ive looked everywhere and cant seem to find a fix to this.

    I have a 16 gig 1.1.4 ipod touch (jailbroken) and today I set up my home email, everything went fine till i went to send myself a test message. (User problem, not ipod problem) I mistyped my email address.. so of course it bounced, no big deal.

    Except for the part now where my ipod remembers that mispelled email address and keeps trying to use it. Ive tried everything, including restoring my ipod and it keeps doing it.

    Ive looked on the net, ive done almost everything i can think of and I cant remove this botched email address from the auto fill... do any of you fine people have any suggestions?

    I Don't Know...

    I've got something similar to this problem, but can't you just use the contacts or retype your mail address to click that one instead?

    That's what i do - i know it isn't an iPhone, but the contacts book is still really handy. If you are using contacts, you just find that it's just a nuisance, i've no alternative... Hope that helps!

    Thank you for the quick reply!

    Yes, that does work and is what I will be doing for emailing, it's just a pain that I can't delete that faux email address from the list.

    But yes, the contacts list works great. Thanks!
