After removing email addresses from my contact group list "friends" who's email's no longer exist, i still get bounced messages saying i emailed to a no-existent email when i use my group list. Can anyone duplicate the bug.

1) in Contacts, setup 4 or 5 email address (make sure 2 of them are fake, no existent address) with group name "friends"
2) compose an email, then in the "TO" field type "friends", this will auto-complete with all the emails under group "friends", now send the email.
3) wait 1-5 minutes, you will get a 2 bounced emails from the fake addresses.
4) go to your Contacts Manager then remove the fake addresses from the group list "friends"
5) compose another email, type the group name "friends"... notice the addresses you removed are still there!!

Hopefully this bug can be fixed soon.

i believe this bug is caused by the fact when you remove a contact's email, it makes a duplicate contact without the email.
