Gmail is the most popular web-based email server introduced by Google and it has many great features that are helpful while browsing, editing and sending emails. One of such features is the auto-complete list which allows users to see the list of email addresses saved as a contact before finishing typing the full address.
This feature is really beneficial but sometimes it can be not so good approach because there can be a few email addresses that are not valid anymore or might have been deleted by the user. For example, someone who has left an organization can’t access the corporate email address anymore. But there is a way to delete those email addresses from getting highlighted in the auto-complete list in Gmail.
