Does anyone know how to make Outlook Express Address Book alphabetize itself? Mine and most of my friends address book is in order, but my friend's who has WIN98SE is not.

Anon,

Don't think I have been ignoring you... but any email/mail program related questions I am usually not on the top of my game with... meaning I usually don't have an answer. I don't use Outlook Express, but I will check at work today and see if I can figure out a way to A-Z the contacts.

I think I got it. Open the address book in outlook express. Ok....here is where it happens. Right above the white box where the list of contacts appears, there is a gray bar with labels for the columns. Like "name" for name, email address, phone, so on. The NAME part should have an arrow that points Upward. This tells the address book to sort by name from a-z.

Here is how to make it do that: Click once on the Name column. It should now have an arrow. If it is pointing Up, you are done...names should be A-Z. If it is pointing down, just click the name column one more time to get it from Z-A to A-Z.

That's it!

Josh and Anon,

Another way if you have OE5, is to open the address book, click on view/sort by/name/first or last/ascending or descending. Works on my pc w/98SE-IE5.5/sp1.
