E-Maill Addresses Are Appearing in Contacts
FB13
Member

Starting today, some Yahoo e-mail addresses I've written to started showing up in my Contacts list.

 

When I tried to delete one, message said:

 

"Cannot delete contacts from read-only accounts, but you can hide them in your contacts lists."

 

Huh?

 

How do I stop these from appearing and how do I delete them?

 

Thanks.
