Description

15 years ago
Trunk build 2002-12-04: WinMe, Mac 10.1.3
haven't tried linux yet.

Overview: Autocomplete with an LDAP directory and the results do not appear in
alphabetical order. This can mislead a user to thinking that their desired
address is not present.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to Preferences, Address panel and add an LDAP directory (i.e. Netscape).
Select this directory for Autocompletion.
2. Exit/restart for changes to take effect
3. Compose a message and start typing
jennifer

Actual Results: In my case the first address listed is Jennifer M....
I have to go down about 5 more addresses before I see Jennifer Glick.

Expected Results: I would expect autocomplete to display the address choices in
alphabetical order. In my case I would expect Jennifer Glick to appear before
Jennifer M.....
