    Can anyone please explain to me how I can permanently delete the automatically stored email addresses that are not in Address Book App? I've read that they're stored in some other database and I don't know where to begin looking. I've tried using the little drop down arrow at the end of each email address and selecting 'Remove From Previous Recipient List'. I tried that last night and today the addresses are back so that method doesn't seem to be working at all. Any thoughts?

    Thank you swiftaw. But Isn't this the same method that I mentioned above? I've read your suggestion elsewhere and the same can be done by using the drop down arrow and deleting it that way but like I said, they're back today. I'm going to restart my mac and use your suggestion.
