Hi Sheppard,

I've made this post private so you can share account specific information. Could you provide more details? Maybe a screen shot?

listed in contacts with just the email address.  we want to delete 2 of the 3.  when I go to open the contact to delete, there is not pencil to click there is only the little cloud, which makes the contact appear several times.

It sounds like it's syncing contacts from various sources.  You'll need to go to that persons computer, and take a look a their desktop app. Go to Settings > Contacts and look at the screen shown below.  See what switches are turned on/off.

It could be what's causing the duplicate contacts listed. Without having more information it's hard to say.
