    I only have pop accounts and do not sign in.
    I have the contacts View, Show the last name first.
    I receive an email from someone who is not in Contacts. Example, Tom
    When I clicked Add contact in an email, the add contact window had first
    name, Johnson, last name, Tom.
    I tried with another address and the same thing happened.
    If I change to Show the first name first, the names are in the correct

    I also noticed that a comma is not placed after the last name when the View
    is last name first.
    Are these bugs that should or already has been reported?

  2. aha! Thanks for this info. I'm a last-name-first viewer. I was greatly
    troubled some months ago when my WLM 12---->14 contact-migration via
    export/import of a csv file resulted in many names so transposed.
