    I logged out of my iCloud, and gave permission to delete my contact off my mac. It didn't delete them, so I deleted them myself. They are gone out of my contact list, but when I go to search for an e-mail or start to write out an address it starts to auto populate addresses that were in my contacts, that no longer "exist" on my mac.

    How can I remove this auto population of ghost e-mails?

    Thank you!

    You will need to reset everything so you can remove the cache from your machine.

    If you start a email and the address of a removed contact that starts to auto populate. Let it. Then click on the small down arrow next to the address and select remove from previous recipients list. This will stop it from auto filling a removed contact in a email.

    As easy an answer Ed provided to you which was easier than mine, If you want it done completely in one fell swoop then do what I suggested and you are done, It is up to you do decide what is the quickest way for you. You can't have both so make a decision and stick with it.
