Hi folks,

Strange one here. Using MobileMe on my 2 x Macs, 1 x work PC, 1 x iPhone. The example of my problem is this:

I have a 'Dave Smith' as a contact sync'd between my devices. I want to remove 'Smith', so that 'Dave' is just the viewable name. I edit out 'Smith', on either the me.com site, on my iPhone, or on my Mac(s) / PC and all is fine.

However, a while later, the 'Smith' automatically returns and is again sync'd across all of my devices. It doesn't matter on what device I remove Smith, it will always return within an hour or two and be re-sync'd across my devices.

Does anyone know how to stop this? In the real world I have a number of contacts whereby I wish to remove this surnames, but it keeps putting them back!

Something must be taking precedence for some reason.

Cheers,
C

For the record, this problem is caused by the cached email addresses held within Mail.

With Mail loaded, go to Window > Previous Recipients from the menu bar, remove the offending name/address and all will be right with the world.
