    I just realized that I have nearly 100 names in my 'nickname' folder
    (wherever that is) :rolleyes:
    these are the names that appear when auto compete is enabled and you start a new email
    and most of them are NOT in my Contacts file
    yes, I know, I can make NEW email, with the nickname in the TO box, then rt click and hit 'add to Contacts'
    but surely there must be a better way
    what is it :crosseyed:

    Under the E-Mail entry field is a Display as Field and Under the Name Entry Field section under File As I put in the nick name.
    If you click on the All Fields Tab and The Name Fields Drop Down Tab there is also a Dedicated Nick Name Field.
