GMail has a nice feature that it not only stores all the addresses you’ve stored in your contacts list, but also one you’ve sent an email to. It is a nice convenience, but not always. For example, you’d be having an updated address in your contacts list however, GMail will also show an email address which your contact had ages ago. You may end up picking the wrong address!

Worse, those unwanted email addresses keep showing up in your Chat window to your left (if those addresses are GMail addresses). There may be a few you don’t want to see whether they are online or not.

So, how do you delete a Contact, which isn’t really one of your contacts?
