how to stop auto add to address book

how to stop auto add to address book

Suddenly the email addresses I reply to are now being added to my address book on webmail.  They don't appear when I look at my address book, but are present when I click on "To" to select an email address.  How do I stop this and How do I delete the unwanted addresses?  Thanks.  Debbij

Re: how to stop auto add to address book

Whenever you reply to an email address that is NOT in your address book, the system will always include it when you click on TO.  Eventually tho, it will drop off on its own.

Re: how to stop auto add to address book

I agree.   This "feature" is relatively new and almost appears to have been added just to irritate users.   I'm seeing entries for "noreply@...", etc appearing in my "To" list.   Things which aren't even legitimate email addresses.   I know Comcast/Xfinity does not want to be an email host and is encouraging people to go to pop services, but I did not expect them to intentionally irritate users.   Since this was added, it can be taken away too.

Whoever added this "wonderful feature" should be tarred and feathered.
