Apple Mail adds last names into my Address Book - how to stop?

    I save all my contacts in Address Book in the First Name field (not using Last Name Field). When I use Mail to send emails, somehow last name of the sender/recipient gets added to that person's contact. So John Harris becomes John Harris Harris - super annoying!

    Someone suggested to delete all from Recent Recipients in Mail - I did that, it helped but only in relation to those contacts who have been deleted from Recent Recipients - is there a way to disable Mail poaching surnames from my emails and inserting them into address book automatically?

    Thanks so much

    Anyone please?

    I also have a problem with Address Book synchronising with ME / iPhone, some entries get doubled.

    Thank you
