    I have a few friends who have changed their email addresses, but Mail keeps auto completing the old addresses when I type their names in. The old contacts were deleted from the Address Book program, but Mail's auto fill keeps putting the obsolete ones in. Please help.

    In Mail--> Window--> Previous recipients, just delete the obsolete contacts.

    "Previous recipients" is where it's at. Thanks!

    You have to remove them in the Previous Recipients window as described above and then re-sync.

    Did you even read my post? You have to re-sync. Assuming you've got your iPhone to sync your Mail accounts, it will also sync the Previous Recipients.
