    Hi Greg. Welcome to Android Forums.

    You may be able to get rid of it by going to menu>settings>applications and finding the messaging app. Then tap on it and select clear cache and then clear data. Reboot your phone.

    Mind you this will remove all message threads so if you want to save any of them, back them up first.

    Are you using hangouts for messaging? I don't see a "recent" selection in my messaging app. Let me know your phone model and android version. It might be a carrier app.

    Oh boy ... that's pretty old school ;)

    Sounds like it's part of the TouchWiz stuff that came with it when it was new. My captivate hasn't seen stock for a year. Sorry, I don't remember very much about TouchWiz settings. Maybe someone else with a stock phone could help you.
