Spark for Mac

3.13. Wrong contact suggestions

There are two scenarios when Spark may suggest to you the wrong email address in the “To:” field. Please see your case and follow the instructions to solve the issue.

1. There is an outdated or misspelled email address

To delete a wrong contact suggestion while composing an email, tap the cross icon near this email address.

This feature is available in Spark 2.1.6 or newer. If the app hasn't updated automatically, open the App Store > Updates. Find Spark on the list and click Update.

2. Information from two different contacts is merged

In some cases, Spark may suggest a completely wrong email address when you compose an email. For example, when the "Tom Green" contact merges with the "" email address which belongs to a different contact.

To fix this issue, please try to update the contact information in Spark:
