Outlook 2000 distribution lists incorrectly alphabetized



  • 1. Why can't I receive a reply from some people but can others?
    I have a few people on my contact list that cannot reply to my emails. The majority of my contacts can reply. I don't know that they can't until they try to do so. When the email comes in, and pops up at the bottom of the screen, I can see their reply (a small amount of it). When I go to my inbox and click the email, all that I see is my message. Can you help?

  • 4. Can't forward Outlook contacts...
    I can no longer forward Outlook contacts. Normally, if you right click on a contact, there is a "Forward" option in the pop up menu. Alternetly, if you highlight a contact, and go to the action menu, there is a Forward option. The Forward command is no longer available and does not even appear in the menu. All contacts are normal sensitivity and are not marked private, personal, or confidential. This seems to be happening on a single workstation on our network. Any ideas?

I find that some names in the distribution list are alphabetized by last 
name, others by first name.  Why? How can I fix it?

Unfortunately, DL's sort very erratically. If the Contact Record was created 
in the same version as the DL was created, sorting should follow the setting 
you specified for the Outlook Address Book. Most of the time, they do not.
