    I use Mail and Address book ( storing all my contact ). Now I like the fact that Mail references my Addressbook contact. But it has an annoying habit of doubling the single names I use in AB, if I send an email to someone on my list.

    Example - my friend Adam is in my list as 'AD' --- however, when I send him an email from Mail, in the email address field, if I type 'A', I'll get a list of my email contacts begining with A. I drop down to AD, and send the mail. All well and good so far.

    Now, when I go back to AB - he's listed as ' AD AD '!! Why, and what can I do to stop this. Doubly annoying cause when I sync my phone, my phone then shows ' AD AD '

    cheers for the help :D

    Is it 2 entries or just putting AD in the first and last name?

    looking through rose-tinted spectacles...
    How is that user's email address set up both in your directory and in his 'sent from' field?

    I know I've had a problem where for some unknown reason a friend has made their emails looks as if they come from firstnamelastname (run into one) with an address of . My Address Book has their name in firstname lastname and their address as

    But Mail shows them as
    firstnamelastname lastname
    when I try to send them messages. My Address Book did do this at one point but after editing it correctly, it hasn't changed it again.
