I just upgraded to Office 2003 from Office 2000. In Outlook, when sending an e-mail--when I hit the "To" button to bring up mu contacts, the "Select Names" list has all the names listed alphabetically by first name. Is there any way to have the names listed by last name? Outlook 2000 had them listed by last name. When I am in the Contacts section, it lists them by last name. Why not when sending an e-mail? I've tried all that I know. What can be done?

    Thanks. The only thing to add is that before the change takes effect, Outlook needs to be closed and re-started. It worked great, though. Thanks, again.
