Recent Contacts will contain the addresses of people who have left the company. This can result in users sending email to contacts who no longer exist. Whilst they will receive a delivery failure a more efficient solution would be to periodically prune Recent Contacts of people who are no longer in the directories used for corporate lookups.

this entire feature irritates me, but especially for this reason

I tend to go to the recent contacts view and purge everything after I make contacts out of the people I do need.

This would be similar to what you want, since most recent contacts are not in the corp directory.

Maybe a better approach would be to add a function where the user can check the validity of his/her contacts. And, to avoid spam, this function should be limited to the internal addresses.

Do you remove users who left the enterprise form the NAB? I think here we just remove them from access-groups. So this idea would not help.

I'd like to point to an idea I head reding this one (and others): { Link }

I think that @2 explains the way to "fix" this, so, like @2, I am demoting it.
