email names not in contacs when composing email


When composing a new email (activesync). I see many different email addresses when typing in TO... but most of these names are not in my contacts list.

How can I remove certain names?

I'm actually trying to send emails to myself but there are six different addresses with my name... only one of the addresses works.. the others are invalid and bounce back (for instance, one of them does not have anything after the @ sign).

When I check contacts I have only one with my own name in it.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Re: email names not in contacs when composing email

They are just suggestions from previous emails (you must have typed them in by mistake or received emails from someone with those addresses--possibly spam) and, unfortunately, you can't remove or change them. After a while they'll go away.
