Mail delete recipient auto-complete entries

  • Hi there,

    I need to delete some bad email addresses that auto-fill when I start typing a recipient email address.

    Does anyone know how to do this? Delete recipient history, not browser address bar history.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Go to Contacts and delete the bad entries - the only source for autocompletion of recipients is Contacts. (By default, any address you send mail to is automatically added to Contacts, though you can change this in the account properties.)

  • Ahh, cool thanks!

    I hadn't even noticed the new contacts panel get populated:)
    Opera Mail isn't my primary mail client so I hadn't figured it all out yet.

    Cheers for the answer. Case closed.
