Windows 7: Windows Live Mail contacts

Windows Live Mail contacts

When I select to send a contact, their name shows last name first on the to: line.
I want to show it as John Doe instead of Doe, John.
Any ideas. Thanks Shiron

I am sorry. I meant to say when I go to the contacts and select "mail" no matter how I sort the contacts the name come out last name first such as Doe,John instead of John Doe. I have tried putting the first names as last name in the contact list but that is much too complicated. I want the people I write to to see their names as you would write anyone..... John Doe, or Sally Smith not the last names first.
Thanks for the post.
Shiron

Maybe a repair will fix this. Go to control panel>programs and features>select Windows Live Essentials and choose the repair option in the window that presents itself.

So when you click on the programs and features in the control panel, Windows Live Essentials is not showing in the list of installed programs?

I am talking about the name that shows on my message such as John Doe instead of Doe,John.
I fully understand about the contact list sorting.
