    TO field e-mail address list (Outlook 2000 SP3)

    ...I almost wish Clickie would come back to say things like "give up, we hard coded that..."

    Anyway, I think that is the case, but will ask here anyway. I switched to IMO mode from CW mode. Fine. I like being able to send-from whatever account I need to for that message. However I hate that my contacts are now all listed in alpha order by first name! ARG. I've been using Outlook since 97 and always with my To pick-list sorted by company then last name. Am I stuck with this? Did I miss a setting? I read in the older messages that there is some VB code to re-alpha contacts...but that isn't what I am trying to do...I would like the e-mail to-field pick-list alpha by co/last name.

    We've been set up as IMO for years, (I've refused to switch to SP3, we're still 1A ) have you tried this? From the main menu: Tools, Options then in the contact section click on the Contact option box. The 2nd box allows you to "File As" last name first (but that means when you send e-mail from the address book it will go to Smith, Joe)

    Tried that (you'd think that would work!) however it still displays First Last searchable on first name when addressing from the TO field...

    You've probably tried this too but just incase the address book has its own limited sort settings. Open the address book by clicking the icon, view, sort by.
