delete names in address book

I have  names in my address book for sending and forwarding emails to them.  Somehow  i have 2 people that I did not put in  address  book.   When I try to delete them they dont show up where you delete them. Everyone of those I put in there show up.   How in the workd can I delete them?.

Re: delete names in address book

Can you clarify------are you talking about contacts that are  in the address book, or do you mean the list of names that shows up when typing in the To: field?

The names that are in the list to send  and foward things.   I can delete all except the 2 names I didnt put in there. How they got in there i will never know. I have sent emails to the 2 that are in there, But never put them in the list.  Hope you understand this.

Re: delete names in address book

The auto-complete feature in the Comcast address book has it's own memory.  You can't access it or alter it.  Periodically Comcast will re-set accounts, and at that time entries that have been deleted from your address book should vanish.  However, they only do that sporadically, on no particular schedule.  So those old addresses could keep popping up for quite a while.

 

Also, when you type an address into the To: Cc: or Bcc: fields, the feature will remember it if you actually send an email to that address, even if it’s not in the address book.
