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

Re: Address auto complete remove old email address

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."

I tried that and it did not show an x or anything when I hovered over the ones I wanted to delete. Any further suggestions,
Thanks

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.

When I do that, it says that it was permanently deleted, then the next time I go to send an email, it's back again.  Any ideas why this is not functioning for me? Thanks.

When I click on the X the address goes away but another window opens and says

( suggestion Permanently delete).

I have been trying to delete a address for several months nothing works%^^&&#@!
