address list

address list

My address book lists the names I want for my emails but when I am writing an email and click on "To" it comes up with a list of everybody I have ever sent an email to or received one from and does not have all the names in my address book.  How do I get the "To" list to match my address book?

Re: address list

The "To:"  drop-down list will usually have addresses that are not in your address book because----------------------------

 

The auto-complete feature in the Comcast address book has it's own memory.  You can't access it or alter it. 

 

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.  It's actually pretty common behavior with webmail accounts.
