When I go in to a contact I see an outdated email address that I can not change, I can add another Personal email but I can't remove the outdated one. The outdated on has a globe in front of it, but the new one I added has a Phone on it. What does this mean? (I think it means the outdated one is on the Web and the new one is on the Phone)

Is there a way to remove the outdated one?

"Mauritz@heroknights.net" is the outdated one!

Edit the contact, go to Email, tap on the address you want to delete and delete it, make a Pull left or tap on "Accept".

If the contact is imported from Google, these contacts data can not be edited because the sync is one-way only.

Nothing happens, I can't press it and nothing happens even if I press and hold on it.

You edited the contact via Pulley menu? Then tapped the Email text on the right side? Then tapped on the address and the cursor shows?

I tap on it and nothing happens, (Pulled down from Pulley menu, went to Edit, then went to Email press on the outdated email, but nothing happens)

Where is this e-mail address synced from?

I got it from a vCard file from iCloud. But that email was removed from the vCard so I have no idea where it is coming from.
