    Hello guys.

    I only have a question about Apple Mail. Some of you will probably ask why does he ask such a simple question but here it goes anyway. (i just need to know)
    When writing a new e-mail. When i start typing the name of the person in the (TO:) or (CC:) field, Mail gives me some suggestions so i don't have to type the entire e-mail address. So far, no problems. The only thing is that it shows me some old e-mail address that are no longer valid and no longer in my address book. Is their a way to get rid of those old e-mail address.

    I told you it was a simple question but i can't seem to find the way to do this. I even tried to clear the Mail cache in: user, library, cache, mail and it doesn't change anything.

    Any idea anyone?

    Thank you in advance, Yvon.

    Those addresses are not found locally I believe. It's from the contacts in your mail service, like Gmail or Yahoo.

    Yup, just did a test. Simply clear out the contacts list on the online mail site (like and check for new mail. That should fix it. Also digg around the address book.

    Select menu Window/Previous Recipients. From displayed list select address e-mail or person that you want to remove and than click Remove From List.
