Outlook 2003 Distribution List

By harryp ·
My Contact list is ordered Last name First, then first name. When I make a distribution list, it is always arranged in order of first name. How do I get this to sort on last name?

Did you get a solution to the problem you described? It is mine too.

Don't Use "Full Name"; Only Use "File as"

by LSA1 In reply to Sorting

An approach that seems to work, when
creating a new contact, is:
-- do NOT use the "Full Name" field
(leave it blank)
-- in the "File as" field,
type last name, first name
-- in the "E-mail...",
type a valid e-mail address
-- press the <Tab> key.

The latter step populates the "Display as"
field with last name, first name.

This is the value that Outlook uses in
the "Name" column of distribution lists.
