I've searched and tested for quite a while because evidently I have no life and I can't stay away from a good puzzle. I found this post http://forum.theiphoneblog.com/iphon...ontacts-2.html discussing a plugin for Bosspref. It seems like it worked for one guy but it didn't for me. It corrupted the database that contains the history and contacts. Luckily I backed my files up before trying and it was easy to restore them. Try at your own risk.
The only other solution I've found is to restore the phone....which I think is unrealistic for something like this.

Yes you are right.....I forgot to give you the path of the two files the plugin messes with.
If you know anything about database programming and structure, you could download sqlite for free, open both databases and delete which ever tables that are storing these email addresses. But I wouldn't recommend it unless you know what you're doing.

This really is a pain. I have a friend who I used to email at his office email address, but he recently got laid off, so the email address is no longer valid. My iPhone, however, still pulls up that email address everytime I start typing his name in a new email to him even though I deleted that work email address from his contact info in my address book.
