distribution lists in outlook 2007


I

Ian Leet

When I select members for a distribution list, Outlook insists on showing me the contact information in first name order. This is really unhelpful when you have a very large number of "Bobs" in the contact list. I would like to be able to have it show me names by last name within company.
I also can't see the company field in the pane that shows the names. I'm not sure, for example, if I am selecting the "Bob Smith" from Chrysler or the "Bob Smith" from Ford.

When I select members for a distribution list, Outlook insists on showing
me the contact information in
first name order. This is really unhelpful when you have a very large
number of "Bobs" in the contact
list. I would like to be able to have it show me names by last name within
company.

Click Tools>Account Settings and select the Address Books tab. Select
Outlook Address Book and click Change. Set the sort order there. You can't
choose by company, only by firstname lastname or file as order.
I also can't see the company field in the pane that shows the names. I'm
not sure, for example, if I am
selecting the "Bob Smith" from Chrysler or the "Bob Smith" from Ford.

The Address Book interface is not configurable. Slide over until you see
the e-mail address field or widen the window enough to include it.
