change email recipients name

Postby webwolfi » Fri Feb 18, 2011 11:22 am

when an email is composed to a recipient from the addressbook, the recipient in the email "TO" field is displayed like that:

"Family name, first name middle name" <john.doe@domain.tld>

we use the middle name field for some hints referring to the recipient to be able to easily find him or her e.g. on the iPhone.

this ends up in something like that:

"Doe, John some wired words" <john.doe@domain.tld>

how can i change this to simply

"Family name, first name" <john.doe@domain.tld>

I'm sorry but you can't. The middle name is really part of the name. You should use another field for the hints.
