Hi , I have a contact list of almost 300 addresses but less than half are in alphabetical order. After Z I have a red omega sign then a second lot of addresses all muddled up. How can I tidy things and get all of them into some sort of order
It is the contact's Last name, specifically the first character, that dictate where it appear in the Address Book index, for example whilst the last name for Fred Smith and Fred Տmith may lookalike the former is using a Latin capital letter S whilst the latter is using Armenian capital letter tiwn resulting in the following:
To correct this the last name for the contact indexed under Ω should be amended to use a Latin capital S resulting in:
It is likely the correspondence from which the contact detail was extracted used non-Latin characters in the email address's display name resulting in the Address Book entries you see.
Should further explanation be required it would be help if you could copy and paste the last name of an entry indexed under Ω.
Still very puzzling. Many of the addresses do not have full names, usually without capitals eg firstname.lastname@example.org, some are with numbers eg email@example.com others are like editor.@ thetimes or info@thetimes. Very few are of the simple Fred.Smith form I originally spoke about.
Incidentally how would I change from Armenian to Latin capitals? completely beyond my skill or knowledge!!
I think it would be helpful if we both had the same point of reference and to facilitate this can you do the following with one of the contacts that is indexed under Ω and is not confidential or private:
locate the entry in the address book
select the entry
highlight the main details and then press Ctrl + C to copy the text, for example for Fred Տmith:
Hi VIP, I have sent you copies of entries from both sections of the address book after modifications by the system probably because of HTML troubles at first, but they do not seem to be in my sent mail folder.
This note is just to tell I have sent them(in case you have not received them.
