I use mu4e to read and write email. One email address that was in the LDAP server before no longer exists, but it still shows and auto-completes in mu4e.

How can I remove that address from the local database? And where is that database stored?

Following the GitHub issue, one solution is to ignore that address in address completion. Add this code in ~/.emacs:

(setq mu4e-compose-complete-ignore-address-regexp
      (concat "\\(?:no-?reply\\|.*\\.unwanted\\.domain\\.com\\|"

and notice the escaping of periods with (\\.). Then restart mu4e.

The database of contacts will be stored in the Xapian database starting with mu4e 1.4.
