EliApps (Google Apps for Education): Delete autocomplete addresses
Any time you reply to an email through EliApps or via Outlook, the person’s information will be stored either in a contact or in an autocomplete address. This can cause issues with mail delivery if the person’s email address changes.
Using EliApps Website
To remove an autocomplete email address from EliApps, you must remove the contact record.
Navigate to the Mail menu (located at the top left of the EliApps screen) and select Contacts.
In the search field (located to the right of the EliApps logo), search for the incorrect contact by typing the name or email address that you want to remove.
Open the contact, then navigate to the More menu (located at the top middle of the screen) and select Delete Contact.
Once the contact is deleted, the autocomplete in the “To:” field for that contact name/email will no longer exist.
