I use Mail to send and receive e-mails. When I delete an old e-mail address and replace it with a new one (for the same person) Mail still remembers the old address as well as offering me the new one when I start to type the first letters in the "To" box. Is there a way I can ‘permanently’ delete old e-mail addresses please. Otherwise I have to "remember" which is the old one and which is new and as I have many e-mail addresses in my list, that's very difficult.

I hope someone can help. Thanks.

1. On the Menu bar go to Window - Previous Recipients

or

2. Start typing the address or name you want to remove in a new message and select it from the auto-complete list.
Click the small down arrow that appears when you hover the cursor over the recipient's name.
Select 'Remove Address' from the menu.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Thanks for option 2 Bob. I didn't know about that method. Actually I forgot about that one. Yeah that's it, forgot.
