Erase/edit previously sent-to e-mail addresses?
I want to erase/delete the e-mail addresses that I have sent, not those in my contacts. I have tried a total "reset" and they are still there. I cannot find any place to edit these. The problem is that the phone retains all sent addresses, good or bad; so I have ended-up with multiple addresses for the same addressee (mostly due to the "haste makes waste" input mode! Otherwise after two months of I-Phone(ing) I am feeling pretty competent.

I tried that but...
OK...I went to "settings" then "safari" then "clear cache". After doing that the unwanted e-mail addresses would still appear when I would touch the first alpha key in those addresses. Thinking that I may need to perform those "clear cache" steps then shut off the I-Phone and restart I tried that all with no success.
Leaving me to scratch my head!?!?

I had tried that also...
I am making myself crazy!
I cleared history, cache and even cookies...tried it and the haunting addresses are still there. Tried clearing history, cache and cookies again; then shutting off and restarting and voila same d--n addresses!
Could they be trapped on the SIM card? I have purchased a SIM reader and only find Contacts (phone) on there.

If they bother you really really bad, you can restore and set up as a new phone, but you will lose all your stored data. I am not suggesting you do this, but I know how things can really get under your skin. I've restored and set up as a new phone for what I would consider a lesser reason, but it just kept bugging me, I'm a little OCD that way.
Just did a "restore" and...
I just finished doing a "restore" through I-Tunes and the bad e-mail addresses are still there. Apparently they are being stored somewhere in my back-up which I assume could be accessed and edited, but where?
So far I have done the deletes, done a reset and done a restore, all without affecting these nuisance e-mail addresses that pop-up.
Any other suggestions? As you can tell I am possessed about this!!

I did a "restore" where all information is lost through I-Tunes program download. The "restore" says that it is if "your I-Phone is experiencing problems and you wanto to restore it to its original settings".
Then the phone restarts and is automatically sync(ed) to the I-Tunes for the restoration of Apps, Music, Movies, Contacts, etc. I did it all, maybe my dense head is overlooking something.
I really appreciate your replies and I think that I am doing the processes that are suggested.

When you restore, you have 2 choices (after the phone has restored the firmware) to restore from backup (what you have done) and set up as a new iPhone. Setting up as new will take it back to the day you bought it. You will have to load all your apps back on, any data the apps have saved in them will be lost, it will be just like the first time you turned it on. Whether the trouble to set it back up is worth it to get rid of the mistake email addys, is totally up to you, I am not recommending it, just throwing it out there as an option.
