Address auto complete remove old email address

I have tried for the last 6 months to remove

A old email address from my auto complete

With no luck. I have deleted the old address

From contacts an entered a new one. The old

One still shows up in auto complete along with

The new one. Is there anyway to delete this out of auto complete. I looked for posts on this but did not find any that would help or I missed it. Thanks

Found the answer for the auto complete

 

To delete a contact from appearing in Autocomplete:

    When an unwanted contact appears as a suggestion, hover over it in the suggestions list.
    Select the "X" to the right of the name.
    A pop-up appears asking if you are sure you want to delete the contact. Select Delete.

The contact no longer appears as a suggestion in the Autocomplete list.

Note: If the contact you are deleting is also in your Yahoo! Mail list, removing it from Autocomplete will automatically delete the contact from your Yahoo! Mail list."

Are you not seeing the "X" on your smart phone or on your personal computer?  I think the "X" only appears if you are on your personal computer.  I don't believe it shows on your smart phone.
