Delete individual email address suggestion?

FM helpfully (usually...) provides email address suggestions (when composing an email) based on previous addresses (sent or received) that are NOT in the FM contact list.

For me, a number of those suggestions are obsolete addresses, and I find myself at time accidentally selecting the wrong one from the list of suggestions.

Is there a way to delete individual suggested email addresses?

This isn't FM specific. For a general solution applicable in Windows see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1220341 (AFAIK this works with other browsers too)

Sorry...I wasn't specific enough in my question; I'm sorry for the omission. I was asking the question with respect to the FM iOS app.

@janusz: I appreciate your taking the time to reply.

Hi Camner,

this is strange. Usually the Fastmail iOS app (as well as the Fastmail web client) only suggests contacts from your (Fastmail) address book, I just verified this on my phone. Are you sure the suggested addresses arenít in your FM contacts? Do you have "Auto-save contacts" turned off in Settings → Preferences → Advanced Settings, Section "Compose & Reply"?

Cheers,
Michael

Let me check this. Thanks.

It turns out that on one of the 4 devices on which we use FM, the Auto Save Contacts WAS turned on, which probably explains what happened.

Thanks.
