Actually, it looks like it is yahoo's fault.
I have two emails setup on my phone, the outlook one and a yahoo one. I was using my yahoo one when replying to the emails, so they are saved there.
But, when I go to send an email with my outlook address from my phone, the emails are there from yahoo sent items. These people are not listed in my contacts.
Is there a way to fix that?

Yeah, I don't want to remove my yahoo account, as I still use it. The email addresses that are populating are not saved contacts. For example this is what is happening.
I have two email accounts on my phone, 1 for outlook and 1 for yahoo.
I replied to a few craigslist questions through my yahoo email. I did not save the addresses, only replied. I will never use those email addresses again.
I went to send an email through my phone using my outlook account, and email addresses are populating with addresses(when I hit a "J" for example) from when I replied through my yahoo mail. I never sent an email to that address through my outlook account.
It appears there is a setting on the phone somewhere, which we may not have access to that saves every email address you send to, and makes them available to any account. I don't think it should be doing this though.
The same email address are not populating if I go through www.yahoo.com or www.outlook.com. This only happens on the phone, so it appears it is an issue with the phone.

You sent some emails to one off accounts that you will never email again, yet they still pop up in the "Autofill" when you are trying to email someone...why and how do you get rid of it? - That is the question I would pose.
I do not have an answer, but I see the same thing, mostly in the form of duplicates. When I type in my wife's email address to shoot a quick note, her name/email pops up ~3-4 times. I think that would mostly be to having received and replied to the same email with multiple name headings (when she emails from HER phone her name is "Wife (Phone)" and from her computer it is "Wife Middle Last" and from the tablet it is "Wife Last"; you get the idea).
I only have 1 contact for her in my phone.
