    hi - I have emails in my inbox , all from same person and email address, that show up under the "From" heading with different labels - or names, such as

    Robert McDee, McDee Robert,, <robert mcdee>

    Can I change these so all emails from one person show up with same name (makes searching for email by sorting 'from' more productive) ??

    and what are these < > ? where did they come from

    Not sure if this will work, but is this person a contact in Address Book? If not make one and include the email address. All I can think of really.

    Yes - - they are in the address book - - and if I make a change there (in address book) like removing the last name, and save it, it "repairs" itself the next time I use mail ! ! !
    sort like having NO CONTROL over how the machine works
