    Default Deleting old e-mail addresses?
    Is there any way to delete old e-mail addresses that come up when composing a new e-mail? I have e-mail addresses that come up from people who I do not even talk to anymore. Is there a way to get rid of all of these from my iPhone?

    ^He thought you were asking something else...

    You can go to Settings>General>Reset All Settings and I think that will forget those old contacts when you setup your email again, but I'm not sure...

    Okay, just be aware that you will have to re-enter all your settings (brightness, push, etc.) after doing so, as well as you e-mail, I believe. It only takes a moment, but make sure you know where you like all your settings at beforehand.

    Well, unfortunately after a little Google-time, it appears that there isn't any way to do this yet, besides a clean restore... Sorry.

    Don't restore your iPhone. There is a way. Read this thread:

    Lol. It's cool All Day. Just trying to save someone from going insane and restoring. Not for nothing but I love that email cache feature but everyone has their own needs I guess.
