Outlook 2003: Contacts: File As: Sorting Issue
Unlike seemingly everyone else, I prefer to file my contacts by first name, last name. It just works better for me.
Unfortunately, Outlook 2003 defaults to File As: last name, first name. When I look at Tools -> Email Accounts -> View or Change Existing Directories or address books, my software shows that first name, last name is the selected File As order. But, every new entry I put into my Contacts book defaults to last name, first name.
I’ve tried to change the selection to last name, first name, then close Outlook, re-open it, then set it back to first name, last name (and close it and open it again), but none of this has any effect.
I have many, many entries in the last name, first name order, and the only way I’ve found to change this is by manually editing each entry.
Does anyone have an idea why my Outlook is behaving this way and how to correct it?
