I would like to remove an erroneous email address from an event's auto-completion list (via Add Invitee) in iCal.

OX S' Mail application provides a Remove from Previous Recipients List option, accessible from a drop-down menu located at the right edge of an email address:

Is there a way to do so in iCal? It is important that the solution doesn't remove my existing calendars or events.

As far as I know mail and calendar both pull from the same place. If you remove the email address from the previous recipient list in Mail that might fix the problem

  • It doesn't seem so, unfortunately. In Mail one can go to Window > Previous Recipients. There I don't see the mail addresses in question.

  • what happens when you delete the MailRecents file located in: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/AddressBook
