When in the contacts folder, press CTRL E, type the contacts
name, press enter, tab to the list of results which should
only be one, unless you have duplicates.

It does. I've never used it, so would probably have to
figure out how.

I would think that there would be a way to search for a
contact. I never use the list when I use Windows Live Mail.
I use the search feature so that I can find the contact by
simply typing part of what I'm looking for and then looking
at the results. I don't know why the list is being
organized in the way you describe but if Windows Live Mail
has a search contacts feature, I would expect that Outlook
does as well.

For some reason, as I add a new contact, they are going to
the top of my contacts. For instance, Jim goes over Alicia,
the beginning of the list, and Billy goes above Jim -
getting to be a big jumble, and most irritating.

Another thing. Do any of yall know how to set it so that
when I enter a contact, I don't have to edit the file window
to get the first name first?
In other words, I enter Jim Smith, but in the file window it
shows Smith, Jim, so I have to back out one of them and the
comma and then put it back in the place where I want it so
that the first name displays first.


Best from,

Carolyn
