    Default Stored email addresses now can be deleted

    That annoying problem where the system saved every address entered has been addressed.
    I installed IOS 6 on my IPad and am now able to remove those old email addresses.

    Type in the stored email address in the To box, then when it displays it, press the indicator on the right and expand the listing. Delete is an option in the expanded listing.

    Hmmm...not seeing this. I see an arrow on a couple, but not all. I wonder what the rhyme or reason is.

    oh, I think I figured it out, you actually need to enter the email address, not the name. Although, I can't seem to get it to work with all of them.

    Ok, this is very inconsistent. I can't figure out how rhyme or reason as to why I can delete some and not others.

    You can't delete them if they are in your address book.

    No, that's not all of it.

    I just sent an email to abcd@foobar.com and abcd@foobar.com show up but without the arrow.

    When I deleted my email in my Sent folder it showed up and I was able to delete the email address from cache.

    So it looks like if you have ONE mail from an address in your mail application you can't remove the mail from the cache...

    Really? That makes no sense. But why am I not surprised. I would love to clean up one time emails from the recents list, but unless I do this, I guess you can't? Seems weird.
