Yes, that’s all it does. It could certainly have used a more specific 
name, such as “Obsolete-Or-Incorrect-Addresses”, but since the 
system lacks a complete user interface it’s hard to get too fussy 
about it.

I use auto-completion, but I really wish Mailmate would more strongly 
prioritize addresses in Apple Contacts over those gathered from my 
INBOX. I have a lot of “blacklisted” addresses that resulted from 
email addressed to me using mangled spellings and even incoherent names. 
I feel like Mailmate should be able to recognize the core email address 
in the Contacts and ignore all the bogus variations that people come up 

It would also help to integrate directly with other address databases, 
e.g., Google Contacts, rather than relying exclusively on the Apple 
Contacts system. Mailmate is not the only email client I use (no Android 
version), and the Apple database is not a universally accessible system 
for me.
