	I have a complain about the way evo stores contact details. It seems to
not have the flexability/choice on how to store them as 

eg: firstname,lastname or lastname,firstname etc.

Currently I have say a few names

M Angie Wan
M Amanda

If I type in (new mail message->To) M A (it'll automatically come out
with some choices, right, cool, but what's missing here is that it only
comes out with M Amanda and never to be seen is M Angie Wan.

So, I tried to change the Contact->Edit Contact->Full Name and put in

Last->M Angie Wan (leaving first, middle etc blank) Does not work. I
also tried a variety of it. It still does not work.

Okay... So I tried clicking on the (new Mail Message->To) icon and in
the selection, I type there M Angie and nothing comes out!! May I know
how is the sorting done? Firstname? lastname? Middle?? I'm confused,
before, using outlook, I had the option of firstname/lastname or
lastname/firstname and I also put the whole name into only say.. the
firstname box and everything will work. Right now.. Nothing does. 

Maybe the problem is between the keyboard and the chair. If it is, Do
let me know so that that problem can be kicked.
