John Doe is someone I email often. John Dee is someone I emailed recently and will probably email again, but not nearly as often. I don't want to remove John Dee from my previous recipients, but I want John Doe to come up first again for quick compleion. (I'm sure that otherwise I'm going to accidentally send John some mail meant for John.) I can't find any way to reorder entries in the Previous Recipients window. Is there any way to make Doe come up first again?

I tried adding Doe but not Dee to my Address Book, but that didn't help.


You can type Doe instead of John in the address fields (To, Cc, Bcc, Reply-To) when composing an email message.

  • True, but I'm looking for a solution where I don't need to think about it so much. Mail comes back with a default, then a delay, then a list of options. I'm looking for a way to get control over that default. – Joshua Goldberg Feb 25 '12 at 16:29
