    Hi. I'm new round here - from the UK and just bought a 2g iPod Touch 32GB and loving it very much

    My Gmail account is working nicely through Mail but I have a problem - i'd love it if someone could solve it.

    I've sent an email to a wrong address (a .com rather than .co.uk one) and now the typeahead always pulls up the wrong one first.

    Can anyone suggest how to remove the wrong one and leave the right one? Or remove them all? I've tried "reset settings" but to no avail.

    Can anyone help?

    Ta.

    See if it's in your Contacts and, if so, remove it.

    It's not in contacts - It's just an address I typed in (in much the same way as IE7 types ahead for all typed URLs regardless of if you've cleared the history).

    It sounds technical. Do i need to do a full reset?

    Thanks to all again. Hope someone can help.

    Using a pc, log-in to your gmail account. Delete the contact that is always misplaced. An delete the sent items. That'll help. I think.

    when you say you have reset the settings have you tried going into safari settings and clearing the stuff from in there?
