How to Delete an Old Email Address from iPhone/iPad and Outlook

Posted on

When we create a new email in Outlook or iPhone/iPad and start typing email addresses, they will suggest us email addresses that we ever sent to.

This is very good feature but sometimes it also displaying old email addresses where we accidentally sent email to that address thus our important email never undelivered and sadly we found it undelivered after we received “undelivered error message” from the system. This is very annoying and if happen several times will drive us mad.
