    When composing a new message Gmail suggests recipients both from your contacts list and contacts that you have sent new mail or replied to in the past. A common problem with these suggestions are outdated suggestions due to your contacts changing email address or closing old email accounts.

    To view and update your Gmail contacts:

    • Click the triangle next to the Gmail under the Gmail logo and select Contacts

    To update your auto-complete suggestions in Gmail:

    • Delete old contact records
    • Delete incorrect contact email addresses
    • Update contact email addresses that have changed
