Contacts Naming Policy - Exchange 2010

Last Modified: 2015-03-03
Good Afternoon,

I have a client who has Exchange 2010 on their server.

They have an issue with only one contact on the server.

For example...

I'm sat at Emily Basford's desk and I want to send an email to Chris Sweet. I start typing 'Chris' in the 'To' section for it to auto-complete but nothing happens. However if I start typing 'Sweet', auto-complete drops down showing me 'Sweet Chris <CSweet@>'

Say I move to another desk and try again, the same thing happens.

I've deleted the entry from auto-completes and tried to re-add it from the address book and the same thing happens.

The address book shows it as 'Chris Sweet' and I've logged on to the server to have a look at the user but I can't see anything that could be changing it to 'Sweet Chris'.

Any ideas?

Kind regards,
