Im running OE5 on a win95 machine.  I have several folders set up under Main Identity in WAB.  Several of the peoples first name is TOM.  Whenever I type TOM in an email TO: it prefills the rest of the email address of one of the toms, but not the one i want.

how can i either set up a default, so that it knows who i mean when i say TOM. or, how can i set up the order in which it searchs the folders in WAB so that I can put the important names higher in the search order?

I think the easiest way to do this would be to assign nicknames to the other Tom's in your address book.

This way, for example, you could nickname a particular Tom as "Bozo", and if you type "Bozo" in the TO: field, it should resolve as being that Tom.
