Okay, those work as expected then. > Does "Chris Smith" display that way or does it display as "Smith, > Chris" or "Chris J Smith"? Chris Smith displays as "Chris Smith <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>". If I use the address book icon to select Chris Smith, and then delete the address until only "Chris S" remains, and then search through the address book with <Ctrl>= or <Ctrl>-, autocomplete finds Chris Sinclair and Chris Stone, but not Chris Smith. As I noted previously, if I delete the Chris Smith entry and the recreate an identical entry, autocomplete then finds it as it should. Up until recently that would be the end of it, and I would have no further problem with that address book entry. But over the last two or three weeks, within this particular group of 8 addressbook entries the problem occurs with address book entries that had previously been found through autocomplete. Furthermore, fixing an entry (by recreating it) does not mean it will stay fixed. In case it is useful - the group (called Rosetta) is in the address book Current Projects and is set up to hide items if not explictly selected. No other options are selected, the distinctive handle is also Rosetta, and there are no group templates.
