Email Auto Complete

I noticed that when I select " compose email" and type in for example, one letter, lets say "a", that I get a hundred or so suggestions for email recipients, that I have no idea who they are, or where they came from. It looks like most of them are being picked up from either my junk email folder, which I never of course respond to, or else, websites that I may have visited.

I get any email listings that range from Ebay, to Lottery sites, to junk emails that I receive for sexual enlargements (alot of those), to people I have no idea who they are.

Where the heck are these coming from, and how do I stop that from happening ?

My understanding of auto complete, was to just show the people that you at one time responded to or emailed at one time.

This is  not the case here.

Re: Email Auto Complete

Hey JamesDee55,

 

This feature currently scans your mailbox and contacts and gives you suggestions for anyone in your contacts or who has sent you an email.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks.

Re: Email Auto Complete

So if I receive trashy emails from porn websites do you think I want those added to my auto complete? I don't think so. This is what happens all the time with my junk email as well as any other emails. This will add up to thousands over a period of time. Totally not acceptable!

Re: Email Auto Complete

If I get cnn email alerts do you think I want to actually email them back? As those are added also to auto fill

Re: Email Auto Complete

I agree, this is highly annoying and should be turned off!

Re: Email Auto Complete

And you think that is an acceptable idea.??? To allow every single email received to be added to the auto suggestion drop down box??? Over time I will have more then 10 times more **bleep** emails added then ones that are actually valid. This is so totally ridiculous. Please fix this issue!!!!!

Re: Email Auto Complete

I mirror the above sentiment, that is ridiculous. Is there any effort being made to allow us to choose if we want to turn this "feature" off? I'm really trying to convince my execs to stick with BB, but silly things like this are making it more and more difficult...
