This is absolutely nitpicky, but it's maddening.

I have a distribution list in my OE6 address book, and one name insists on jumping out of alphabetical order, and I cannot figure out why. There are no apparent extraneous characters or symbols. Yet time & time again ... it jumps to the top of the list. :rolleyes:

(I think I'm going to try and delete the contact and re-enter it altogether.)

Until then, and in case it doesn't work -- any ideas?

Thanks for your help. :)

can you supply more info please.
maybe a csv file which we can try - if you want, maybe email an extract of address book to try

not sure how this stands with email addresses etc....

so your call

ETAF -- I'm not sure if/how a .csv extract would help, but I appreciate the offer.

MFDnSC -- no, I'm not doing any sort, but even if I were, it's only jumping this ONE name to the head of the alphabetical list (it begins with an "E" and insists on preceding the nextname, which begins with an "A"). All the others are remaining in alphabetical order -- either ascending or descending (it would be the last name if descending).

I have outlook express 6
if you open the address book -
then file export
you can export the address book

i dont use outlookk express - so i can import it into my outlook express and see what happens .

however, if you search on help for sort - theres an option which will sort the names by those online / offline - its nothing like this is it??

Are you absolutely certain that the "e" name does not have a space before the name starts? Just a thought.

Hi drowland -- Thanks for the thought. I had the same thought, and there is nothing there. *shrugging*

Thanks again.
