    In Mac Mail when I right click an email address and add it to my Address Book it always reverses the first name and last name in the Address Book. What am I doing wrong?

    I'm sure this is answered elsewhere in the Forum but I can't find it.

    Is it putting them in the wrong field, or simply displaying them backwards? Deleting the name from a field will allow you to see which field it's in.

    If it's just for display purposes, just change the settings in Address Book (Preferences: General: "Show first name: following last name/before last name"). If it's actually copying them wrong, then I'm afraid I don't have a solution.

    Clarification

    Places them in the wrong field. Last Name in firstname and First Name in lastname.
