Sync changes my address book display names

Post by hbruun » Fri Jan 16, 2009 7:35 pm

BirdieSync changes my display names. How do I keep it from doing that? It seems to only do it on the first sync for that contact but when I just moved to a new PC that resulted in about 1000 contacts having their TB display names changed on me.

Example contact

First Name: 'John'
Last Name: 'Doe'
Display Name: 'John Doe'

Becomes

First Name: 'John'
Last Name: 'Doe'
Display Name: 'Doe, John'

Hello,

By default the option "Fill Pocket 'Display Name' field 'Last name, First name' or 'Company name' is checked in "Tools/BirdieSync/Options.../Cards/Miscellaneous". You may uncheck this option to keep original Thunderbird display name. But note that your contacts will be sorted by first name in Pocket Outlook.
