Why is my Contact List not the same as my Address Book

    In Outlook 2003, if I look at my CONTACT list, it is sorted by last name,
    then first name. When I click TO to start a new email, it shows an
    addressbook that is sorted by first name. How do I get these to be the same
    book? And how do I get them both to sort last name, then first name?
    Thanks,
    Dave

  2. Regardless of sorting, is the content the same between the two?

    Click Tools>E-mail Accounts>View or change existing directories or address
    books>Next. Select "Outlook Address Book" and click Change. Set the sort
    order there. Stop and restart Outlook.
