SOURCE: Outlook 2007 Contact

Do you remember when you imported the output from your BB? One of the last steps after you have chosen the file to import shows a button for Map Custom Fields. Choose that button and then drag Full Name from the left side to FIRST NAME on the right side. When I did that, Outlook shows them in order of First name.

Because your previous import mapped FullName from BB to Last Name, that's the way it's showing. I tried within Outlook to change it around and it would not change it for me either.

Moving back to outlook 2007 from apple mail


Hey Frank,
It is not possible to import Apple Mail data into Outlook 2007 as importing *.mbox format file is not supported in Outlook 2007.

You may have to use any convertor tool to convert the *.mbox file to *.pst or other formats supported in Outlook and then can import the database.
Thank You,

Configure ms outlook 2007 to access my office mail it shows my inbox mail but dont shows my outbox mail or sent item & also contact list .Before outlook configure i access my outlook through web mail ....


ahhhh ok you want to access your Sent mail folder and contacts which you used when you used Outlook Web Access(OWA) "outlook through web mail" to connect to your Office Exchange mail server

in order to get this you have to configure Outlook 2007 to connect to exchange server. Do the following steps
  1. if you are running outlook close it as you can not configure exchange accounts when it is running
  2. if you are running vista, xp or 7 click on the start menu and right click on email and go to properties
  3. click on email accounts
  4. select "view or change existing accounts" click next
  5. click on any of the previously configured accounts and remove them
  6. click add
  7. select microsoft exchange server click next
  8. type name of the exchange server (you must get this from your administrator) and type in your username (name which you used to use through web mail) click on next
  9. click on finish
  10. open outlook 2007 and you should see all your previous contacts and sent items
hope this helps

Error 0x80040fb3


Hi,
Typically its caused by a contact not having a FIRST NAME, LAST NAME and COMPANY NAME. (don't confuse FIRST NAME and LAST NAME with FULL NAME, they're not the same!!)
Do an advanced search in Microsoft Outlook to find contacts with blank First Name, Last Name, and Company fields.

1. Open Contacts in Microsoft Outlook.
2. Open the Tools menu.
3. Select Advanced Find from the Find submenu.
4. Select the Advanced tab.
5. Click Field.
6. Select First Name from the Frequently-used fields submenu.
7. Select is empty from the Condition list.
8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 for Last Name and Company.
9. Click Find Now.

Any contacts you find as a result of this need to be modified to include a first, last or company name (not all 3, just one of the 3)

By upgrading to DTM 4.2.2 or higher, that problem should be ignored (skipped), so if its still happening, I'd first go through the steps listed in that link above.

Change display of contacts to first name, last name in outlook 2003


In most phones, there is an 'options' or 'preferences' in the address book that allows you to sort by first name, last name, etc.

As far as Outlook goes, when you are in the contacts tab, there is a link on the left that says "customize current view". Click on this and you can select fields to pick what fields you want displayed or select sort to pick how they are displayed.
