    Mail for Windows 10 Address Book - How to zap People name?


    I HAD
    in my People Address Book a contact John Smith xy@gmail.com
    mail sent using this addess bounced and realised using incorrect address

    Now deleted xy@gmail.com from People Address Book and replaced with correct address

    ..so now I HAVE John Smith yx@gmail.com
    Thats all fine but when start a new email and start typing John Smith am shown both xy...and yx ..to choose from!

    It's not quite same in the Windows 10 Mail App, if you follow the same method it does not work. Indeed nothing seems to work, the wrong entries are permanently stuck there in the autocomplete list.
    Send feedback to MS.
