    When I go to send an email I usually just hit the first letter of the name of the person and it brings up a list of people in my address book. Now it's bringing up all kinds of strange addresses. People I've received email from but don't have their address saved. I've cleared history, cleared the cache and deleted all my old emails but they're still there. What did I miss?

    I've not seen this behaviour, have you tried a battery pull?

    Are you using BBOS 5.0 by any chance?

    Otherwise, are you using BIS or BES? If BES, how do you sync contacts?

    A couple of thoughts:

    1. Are you using FACEBOOK? If you are (or another third-party app which is "integrating" itself with your mail and contacts), this could be the culprit.

    2. Regarding BBOS 5.0, there is a stupid feature that "remembers" recent email addresses. More than contacts - it provides anything recent.

    One of these two things could be your issue.

    My opinion (as a ~7-year BB guy): stick to 4.7.1 and clean off Facebook, etc.

    Try going to your Messages folder. Hit the menu button, hit general options, and set "show recent contacts when composing email" to no.
