Hi, we are running Outlook 2010 on Exchange 2007 from SBS 2008.

Currently when writing an e-mail when we click on the TO or CC buttons the Global Address List comes up with the order Name, Title, Business Phone etc.

We want to change the order to
Name
Title
Company
E-mail

I have created a display list for this combination but don't understand how I pursuade Outlook or Exchange to use a different order.

It's not something that you can do. It's the layout of Outlook's Address Book, and there is no way to change the columns.

Hi, apologies for the delay in getting back to you on this one. Am told by a persistent client that this can be done but don't know if they were referring the the views screen. Am trying to get corroburation from them as suspect you are right.

You can definitely (and easily) created a custom view with any colums that you need. But there is no way to so it in the address book.
