Need to know the following:

1. What exact Mac OS are you running?

2. What EMail program (both name and version) are you using?

Yes, it is, although the version of Mac Mail in OS 10.13.6 is 11.5, not 10.13.6. Also, you don't need to shout! Using all caps makes it look like you are shouting.

Now (beyond the shouting!), here are the ways to remove it:

1. To remove an existing account in Mail:
  1. In Mail, from the Mail menu, select Preferences....
  2. Click Accounts, and then highlight the account you want to delete.
  3. Click - (the minus sign).
  4. When prompted, click Remove or OK, and then close the Mail preferences window.
2. Delete an Email Address from Auto-Complete in Mac OS X Mail
  1. Start typing the recipient's address or name in a new message.
  2. Select the desired address from the auto-complete list as if you'd compose an email to them.
  3. Click the small down arrow in the recipient.
  4. Select Remove from Previous Recipients List from the menu.

Hello and welcome.

Check the Contacts app. He may have multiple contact cards, or his old email is still in his contact card.
