n MS Outlook 2003, when writing an email and you click on the "TO" box in order to list all of your available contacts --
In the "Name" section, how do you get list the names: Last name, First Name : like Doe, John
instead of John Doe?

Open Outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Preferences Tab -> Contact Options

You will see where you can change how the 'Full Name' & 'File As' is displayed.

That's what I originally did but it still doesn't change the name appears to last,first for whatever reason. Anything else you can think of.
I had some other folks try that solution too and it didn't change it either?

2. On the Tools menu, click E-mail accounts.
3. Click View or change existing directories or address books, and then click Next.
4. Click Outlook Address Book, and then click Change.
5. Under Outlook Address Books, click Contacts: Mailbox - YourMailboxName, and then under Show names by, click File As (Smith, John).
6. Click Close, and then click Finish.

Sometimes it takes you closing out of Outlook to sink in as well. ;) If you have not closed out of Outlook then try that please.
