From n.p.m.mailnews thread Bruce Mallet wrote: I've been using Mozilla 0.9.7 recently full time for email but found myself twice embarrased by the autocomplete feature of addressing. Here is how: I've an address book setup for a client company. Some mail I've received from people in the client company contains a lot of "CC'd" addresses of people within that company. These all end up in my "Collected Addresses" book. Not only is there one, but there are *three* names among them that either match or are extremely close matches for friends of mine. So I send a note to one of these friends. Autocomplete finds the name in "Collected Addresses" rather than in my "Friends" address book. I hit send. Whoops. I can find no way to exclude a given address book from the autocomplete search (is there a way?). Theorizing (hoping?) that perhaps the autocomplete search is in the order that the address books appear in the window I've tried to figure out how to reorder them. But I've not been successful. -------------------------------------- It would be very nice if the first matches came out of the real address book and additional matches came out of the collected addresses. It would save typing, not just embarassment.

This is a major annoyance for me. IMPORTANT: A collected address should never be a default choice!!

Hardware: PC → All
Marking nsbeta1 because it is a reasonable expectation.
Discussed in Mail News bug meeting. Decision was to minus and move to 1.2.
Keywords: nsbeta1+ → nsbeta1-
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0 → mozilla1.2
Trunk build 2002-07-09: WinMe, Linux RH 7.1 Marking Worksforme. My Personal address book entries appear before the collected address book entries while autocompeting. Does anyone else still see this problem?
