For everyone who has Outlook and doesn't like the duplicate email addresses that popup when you select
the "To:" (in the "Select Names" window), this add-in is for you. It will change all fax numbers for a contact
to have a pre-pended "Fax:" before the number. This has the effect of preventing Outlook from
recognizing it as a valid address. This way, when you select "To:" and get the Select Names
dialog box, you will see only one email address listed.
You can run this add-in against your default Contacts folder or against an Exchange public folder to keep
everyone else from seeing the fax address listed as well. It works with any folder that has Outlook contacts contained within it including the new Microsoft Business Contact Manager.
Plus, you can save time with this add-in because it will automatically convert any fax numbers of new contacts you create when you save those
new contacts - without you having to do anything.

Outlook Tip: How to change the order of names in the address book
The Outlook Address Book sometimes displays first and last names in the wrong order. If you want to display
"Last, First", but it persists in displaying names as "First Last" (or vice versa) then follow these steps. The
steps are dependent on the version of Outlook that you are using and the mode. You can check the version and the mode by
going to Help...About.
