VIRGIN WEB MAIL Spurious email addresses keep appearing

 

Problem when composing a new email.  If the first letter I type in the "To" column matches any old email address that has been sent to me, that email address appears as a suggestion (this appears to include even email addresses I have blocked),  

These are NOT email addresses from my Contacts list.  How can I delete them and stop them appearing as a suggestion?

Thanks

Rob

Re: VIRGIN WEB MAIL Spurious email addresses keep appearing

Solved it myself.  Under "Addresses" there are "Contacts" and another heading called "Collected Addresses"  These appear to be all the addresses that I have used or have been sent to me that I haven't put into contacts.  All the spurious addresses that I refer to above are listed here.  You can highlight and delete them.as required

Thank you, er, me!

The default settings in VM webmail automatically add all email addresses from incoming and sent email to sub folders of the Contacts list under Collected addresses.

You can turn this off via the settings.
