contact auto-suggestions in mail
I wonder if any one can help me - when i start to type an email address into Mail, the software throws up suggestions. The list of suggestions now holds some obsolete addresses or addresses i don't want to accidentally send messages to. I can't figure out how to remove them from the suggestions list - they aren't addresses in my contacts list, but will have come from emails received or sent at some point or other.

Hello and Welcome to the Forum.
My first thought is that those addresses are somewhere in your Contacts app. I've confirmed this in the past by finding and deleting a contact from Contacts - and "voila" that contact is no longer appearing as a suggestion when composing a new message.
Let us know if you find the errant contact.
Nic55--also, another thing to consider is whether you have multiple email accounts. I have 3 email accounts that have the contact list switched to "on." I have at times turned "off" my work email contact, so I can quickly pull up personal email contacts from my yahoo and gmail accounts. So to add to the information that mlaurencg4 gave you, hopefully that will do the trick.

Besides getting addresses from your contacts, this list also remember old email addresses you entered manually. There is no way to clear this list. In theory these old emails should disappear eventually, but not knowing how big the cache is that holds them there is no way of telling how long that will take.
As a consolation, if you are careful to choose the address you want each time it slowly works it's way to the top of the list.
