I can clear the list of recent addresses by secondary-clicking in the To field of a new message, selecting Edit Recent Addresses and removing the addresses. Alternatively, Settings/Configure/Composer → Edit Recent Addresses.
However, if I enter a character in the To field, I'm still shown a list of recent addresses. These addresses are in .kde/share/config/kmail2rc.
Just a question
When you restart kmail it's ok or not ?
Just to know if it's still on cache.
The addresses are cleared from kmail2rc when I stop Kontact, and on restarting, indeed the addresses no longer appear in a To field.
Ok so it's in cache.
I Will look at.

This commit doesn't fix your bug but it was the same in composer.
I will continue to investigate this bug.
Can not reproduce in master.
Could you reverify it ?
It's still happening in 4.12.1, but now the recent addresses are not in kmail2rc: grep shows they're in share/apps/nepomuk/repository/main/data/virtuosobackend/soprano-virtuoso.db. Sorry, I can't build from source to test.
After restarting Kontact, the addresses are still in soprano-virtuoso.db, and the timestamp of the file is unchanged from before the restart, but the recent addresses have been cleared. That is, if I enter a character in the To field, I'm no longer shown a list of recent addresses.
