Default How do I alphabetize my e-mails?

Are you serious? What does this have to do with Outlook contacts?
Were you thinking that an email client could override your mail server's
settings?
Email is received in the order in which it was received by the server. You
can't change that.
You can certainly sort your Inbox any way your heart desires after the
messages are received. Knock yourself out.

Default outlook contacts list

1. The names in my contact list in outlook are not in alphabetical order.
Where do I find the setting to fix this?

2. Even though I have selected names in my contacts to be listed by last
name first, some contacts appear by first name. How do I correct this?

If, in fact, this is an Outlook question, then you will need to state to
what version and view of Outlook you are referring.

Russ, Thank you for your helpful suggestion. As you already know, it worked.
Interesting, I typed ???alphabetize??? in the ???Search for??? box in this Office
Discussion group (Outlook, Contacts). But only got four hits. Replies to
all four questions from you were the same from you. Try it.

Brian ??? Thank you for suggesting restarting Office. I even went one step
further and did a cold boot of my machine just to make sure!

I also have MS Outlook Express on my laptop. Windows XP, Outlook Express
ver. 6. Same problem. But nothing in the Tools menu to allow me to setup
the way the Contacts are sorted. Any suggestions?

Lastly, my new desktop has Windows Vista. The mail program here is part of
Vista, and not part of Office. I imported my Contacts from Outlook. Got all
the info, but jumbled again. Do you know how to set the Contacts sort
capability in Vista, or is there a different group of experts to help with
this question?

Default outlook contacts list

We have no idea what you mean by "contact list." It's not a term used by
Outlook nor anyone else.
State what view you want to sort and what sort settings you specified.
Outlook does what you tell it to.

Folders sets (PSTs) will display in the Nav Pane in the order in which you
added them, from what I can tell. You can order folders in the Shortcuts
view, but I don't think that's what you want.
