    How to delete autofill email addresses?

    New to 8.1 and have been searching for an answer to no avail.

    How do I delete the autofill email addresses when I compose a new email?

    Many of the emails that show up will never be sent to again. One has even taken a person' name from an email and assessed it to anything sent from PayPal. I have no idea how that happened.

    Incredibly frustrated with the lack of options/customization . . . the entire idea of "apps" on a laptop. bah!

    By the way, I do not utilize the "people" app so I do not have any contacts stored there to delete - already checked to see if emails could be found there. I tried regedit.exe to find the emails I wanted to delete, also to no avail.

    I came across that already and tried to no avail. Right click does nothing, delete button does nothing. I'm using the "mail" app that was already installed on the laptop for my website's domain/admin email (imap since pop3 doesn't work with win8). I can't even find a junk's not filtering spam. Maybe there is a different email app I can use because this one totally blows. btw, I was using Live for outlook/pop3 on my old laptop.
