I have three email addresses all of them start with the letter L. I have also in the past made mistakes when entering my email addresses and have had to delete the bungles email address and start again. Now, when I enter the letter L into my email address box not only do my 3 genuine email addresses appear (which is brilliant) but also the mistakes I have made in the past. How can I remove the email addresses that were my mistaken entries. For instance one time I had just entered the letter l then inadvertently clicked on the sign in button and the single letter L now appears as a complete address as soon as I enter the letter L. One more instance I opened a new email address that I decided to keep for friends and family only, the address was made up of letter and numbers. The first time I tried to open the new address I entered the wrong number by mistake, I could not get into the email page obviously but every time I enter the letter L the mistaken address that I entered also comes up as possible address. I think that the feature is excellent but I want to know how to get rid of the email addresses made by mistake.
