How to delete an email address (when creating a new email)
I have an iphone 4S, when I go to enter a new email, there is an address that comes up that I
would like to delete. I cant seem to find it anywhere in my email accounts....but its still there.
Hope someone can shed some light on this. Thanks

It's only possible if you have a jailbroken iphone, then you can SSH into it to delete the record in the sqlitedb that is your addressbook. I have done it a few times when I had a jailbroken iphone. Currently, I have an iphone 4S and there is no jailbreak yet.

There's a pretty complicated non-jail broken process that involves backing up the phone with iTunes, using a backup extractor, deleting them from there, then restoring, but that seems like way more trouble than it's worth, IMO.

Out of curiosity - could someone explain how you have an email address on your phone that you cannot delete? Is it an old contact and it "cached" the email address? I'm not familiar with this scenario and I'm just seeking to learn. Thanks.

Look at it from the flip side ... "what was that email !?!?" and with it being cached I don't have any issues like that, unless it was a stupid mistype coming up, over time I believe it will eventually disappear but not 100% sure on that
