Newbie contacts question
« on: November 20, 2016, 07:30:27 am »
Hi all, great program, but I have an issue. When I wish to write a new email, it pops up my contacts list, and in amongst all my known contacts are numerous 1 off  contacts that I have sent emails to in the past that I do not want in my permanent contacts list. I cannot see a way of removing them. Am I missing something? Also "auto add contacts" is NOT ticked.
Thanks in advance.

Hi aquatone,
I recommend to have a look into the app's FAQ-page.:

Search for "contacts" on this page and you will find the headlines
"Entering and picking emails (contacts)"
"Saving mail recipients (contacts)"

If they have a "clock" icon next to them, they're extracted by AquaMail from your actual recent messages, not stored anywhere.

App settings -> composing and sending -> recent addresses -> turn off.

If they don't (have a "clock" icon) then they come from the phone's Contacts / People app.

Google pulls them from a few different sources, Google+ (circles, post comments even), Gmail (when you reply in their web mail, maybe the app too).

Aqua doesn't know or care "what" made them available in your phone's Contacts when it looks things up there.

PS - and yes, the FAQ does have more information.
