10.3: Easily remove cached addresses from Mail Apps

It bothered me that I was never able to easily remove an incorrectly typed address from Mail's cached list of addresses. For instance, if I mistakenly emailed a friend joe@example.com, but his address was really joe@example.edu, the .com address would always be the first to show up in the address bar when I would begin to type a message to this person. As of 10.3, you now have the ability to edit or remove any address that Mail has cached.

Just start typing an address for a person, and let Mail auto-complete it (press Tab once it has the right person's name selected). Then, click and hold (or Control-click) on the name in the "To" field, and you are presented with a drop-down where you can choose to edit, remove, or open the person's entry in the Address Book. Very handy.

Mail lets you look at the all cached addresses from the Window -> Previous Addresses menu. I don't think that was in Jaguar

Actually, this is in 10.2 as well. The window is called Adress History. Never knew this existed, thanks! Another problem solved :)

The drop down menu is also easily accessible from the little down arrow at the far right side of the address.
