Subject: Saving Contacts last name, first name by default

    By default, 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 so I don't have to manually change each one?

    It doesn't matter how they're saved, because you can change the sorting when
    you view them...

    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.

    In a Create Mail window:
    Click on To:
    Click on the "Name" column heading... it cycles thru 4 different sorts

    In the Contact Properties:
    click on the down arrow at the end of the Full Name box
