    Mail App

    Windows 10 Mail app is storing all manually entered email address to use as an auto-fill option if you type the first letter of that address again.

    If you happen to type in an incorrect address it is impossible then to remove.

    It seems to create a fake or dummy contact in the 'People' app which again has no option to be deleted or removed.

    I'm finding this extremely frustrating as the incorrect addresses have spread across all my Windows 10 devices!

    Can't really find any other info but I just reset my Surface 3 and the auto-fill addy's are no longer there... My desktop is a local account without the MS email account in the Mail app so is not affected.

    I added my ms email account my desktop and the bug persists...
    resetting my desktop for the 2nd time today to try and fix this...

    There must be a file storing manually entered email addresses, if someone could just tell me where it is and I can try editing or deleting it.
