    Windows Mail saves contacts as first Name last Name and alphabetizes them by
    first name. I can manually change each contact to last name, first name so
    that they are alphabetized by last name which is my preference.

    Is there any way to set Windows mail to save them as last namer, first name
    by default?

    matt57 wat you do is you click on the contact and just change the name of it
    and then click save.

    Thanks, but I want Windows Mail to do that automatically when I save the
    contact and not have to click on it and manually change it to last name

  4. In a Create Mail window:
    Click on To:
    Click on the "Name" column heading, slowly click 4 times to see the
    different sortings available.

    In the Contacts folder:
    Change the View to "Details".
    Right-click on the "Name" column heading, click on "First Name", then click
    on "Last Name"
    Click on the "Last Name" heading to sort by that, or click on "First Name"
    heading to sort by that.
