      In one case, I removed an old hotmail address (that had been hacked) and replaced it with her new gmail address in the contacts, and yet the old hacked address comes up as the preferred address many months later. It worked fine before conversion - but after conversion, suddenly the hotmail address (which was long gone from my contacts) was back as the preferred address. No way to delete it since it was no longer there, I just have to be vigilant every time I insert an email address.

      They are not talking about autocomplete in Internet Explorer.
      The issue here is the smart email address predictor in New Mail. I think this is an excellent feature, whereby it predicts the most common people you email as you type their name. I think this one of new Yahoo Mail's strongest features. This is not available in Classic as far as I know.
      If you want to delete contacts email address, you can still do so. Also if you stop emailing someone, they will gradually slip down the order of predicted email addresses, so they won't come up as often.
