Question on email addresses
When I am entering the To: field a bunch of email addresses automatically pop up. Some of them are old and no longer work. For example my one friends old and new email addresses pop up. Is there a way to delete old addresses that I no longer use or need. they are not saved to anyone's contact information and just seem to be cached. On outlook I can just hit delete when they pop up but it doesn't seem to be that way on here. Any suggestions? thanks.

The iPhone's email client stores each email address you type in a SQL database which is stored on the phone. There are two ways getting these unwanted addresses from popping up when composing an email:
1. Jailbreak the phone, SSH into the directory where the database is stored, download it, open it with MySQL Lite, edit the tables, save it, and then upload it back to the phone.
2. Restore as a new phone and not from a previous backup.
Pain in the butt? Yes. Any other way of doing it? Not that I'm aware of.
