    For some reason, whenever I send out an email to someone that's not in my contact list, it appears as a new contact under the people app, with the email address listed. I don't want it to automatically add these emails to my contacts. Is there a way I can stop this, besides un-syncing my Gmail account?

    Have you tried going to Phone -> Menu -> Phone Settings -> Uncheck "Save to contacts" ?

    Another thing you can do is Contacts -> Menu -> View -> Check "Only contacts with phone number" or uncheck "Show auto Gmail contacts"

    Also, when you're in Gmail, there is an option to not auto-add email addresses. You have to do that from the computer, though. [Edit: actually, this option is for auto-adding of Chat]

    Tried it, but still adds them to my contacts. There has to be a way to turn this off somewhere o_O
    Should I just make all of my contacts in the People app set under Phone, instead of Google? What's the difference in doing that anyway?

    Log into Gmail and make sure all the contacts you want to sync are under "My Contacts". Then using the Eris: People>Groups (3 heads on the bottom)>Menu>Sync Groups. Uncheck "Sync all contacts". Whenever Gmail creates a contact it will be in "All Contacts" which will no longer sync.

    To add to what thetomlin2 has already provided, in 2.1 you have to go to People > Menu > View > uncheck Show auot Gmail contacts.
