Delete erroneous entry in memory when typing new emails (auto fill)?
Just wanna throw a question out here which I'm sure has been asked numerous times. Did a search on here for "auto fill" but got a million hits that didn't pertain. Not sure what to type or what section to search though so I'll ask again. I did some searching online and came to the conclusion that there is no good solution.
When I'm typing new emails, in the "To" area, when I type the first letter of a certain person's email address, several very old erroneous email addresses that I've typed a few years ago that are no longer valid or were typed incorrectly still appear when typing new ones that start with the same letters. From what I've found, there is NO way to delete these old unwanted entries that are stored. I saw something that people Macs are using called "Ibackup" or something to somehow go in and deleted these entries, but I don't have a Mac, I use a PC. I have an IP4 running on 5.0.1 IOS and is jailbroken. Not sure if there is a Cydia tweak out that will do the trick to get rid of these entries.
Thanks for any input or advice.

Actually, there is a tweak for this. You can get Autofill Eraser from Cydia and then just select the email address you want to erase out of there and then it's gone!

Yup, installed and deleted the junk addresses. Cannot believe it was this easy! I guess its alot harder for people who are not JB. Thanks again.

Yah, without a jailbreak, the only way is to restore from new (which sucks really bad -_-) but yah glad it worked.
