Better Auto-Fill Email Suggestions

Proposed
I like the improvements SmarterMail's web interface has made to email suggestions, but it could be so much better. Here is a quick example:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am trying to send an email to web@xponex.com, but despite having typed the entire 'user' it isn't suggested. Even though I email web@xponex.com at least 10 times a day, and I haven't emailed any of the suggested email addresses in probably 5 years. I honestly don't even know who they are. Sure, I could remove them, but should I have to? A few changes to SM should vastly improve this logic.

1. When adding emails to the auto-fill list, keep a tally of how often emails are used.
2. When doing comparisons to display email, use a % match on users and domain name. 'web' would make the user on web@xponex.com 100%, no other suggestion has a 100% match for user or domain, so this should certainly be #1.

Obviously, there are some fine details to be worked out, but these are very small changes that would improve the web interface soooooooo much.
