Customise address prompt

Kuphostiwe

When I start to enter an email address to send mail, I get a list that I can select the address from that I want. However, if I start with D for instance it not only prompts names starting with D, but other names as well that start with different letters.

Can I get it to only display names with the letter I start with? Thank You

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The MoreFunctionsForAddressBook has an option to restrict autocomplete searches to the start of contact fields, but it's only compatible with TB 60 and lower. The autocomplete algorithm has received a lot of attention over the years (for example, but I don't know of any preference that can be adjusted in TB 68 to force matches at the beginning. You may achieve better results by entering more than one letter, e.g. dav instead of d for david. Also, if you delete a contact from Address Book and then add it again, obsolete or rarely-contacted contacts will move to the bottom of the autocomplete results.

Note that the MFFAB add-on also allows each account to make autocomplete scan specific address books, so you can have a 'Favourites' address book.
