Dear folk

Got iPhoneX with latest IOS using gmail app for my personal gmail account.

When I try to send an email , the app shows me list of emails some of them not exist any more and others are still in use but very rare.

How can I remove those ? I am not after removing the whole Autofill/Autocomplete history (list) I am after specific emails

I tried to follow the instructions in the link below but I can't see the exclamation i symbol as suggested

Code:

On a "real" computer (e.g., Mac/Windows/Linux) browser, open gmail. Open settings, go to all settings. In the General section, there is a setting toward the bottom to create contacts for autocomplete. Change that to "I'll add contacts myself".

See if that helps.
