    Windows 8 Mail App - how to delete autofill email address?

    when sending a new email in the Windows Mail App, there is a drop down list of addressees to who you have previously sent email. How do you delete or edit an entry? Where is the editable contacts list? (I have no entries in the People App so there is nothing to do there.

    In this particular case, I got one email and replied. Now the address keeps showing up in the autocomplete list of potential addressees - I will never send another email to that person so how do I get rid of the address?

    Here's a video to show how to do this. Microsoft may fix this later so that there is an 'x' to delete individual addresses in the dropdown (like in the office version of Outlook), but for now this is the only way to do it without going into your registry.
