Previously I wrote an article, located here, about the NK2 file on Windows that stores the email addresses you type into the “To Field” when sending emails.

This is a great feature however deleting old entries is not always the easiest and that makes it a bit unfortunate. You can typically turn off auto complete however you could also modify the files that store the contact cache that is used for auto complete. Follow the directions below to locate email addresses stored in the To Field Outlook for Mac cache to either modify or delete.

I am sad to say that currently there is not a legit way to turn off Auto Complete on the iPod Touch. Many people might recommend to Jailbreak the Touch so you can modify anything including the auto complete functionality.
