Forum Question: Mail changing address book

I save all my contacts in Address Book in the First Name field (not using Last Name Field). When I use Mail to send emails, somehow last name of the sender/recipient gets added to that person’s contact. So John Harris becomes John Harris Harris – super annoying!
Someone suggested to delete all from Recent Recipients in Mail – I did that, it helped but only in relation to those contacts who have been deleted from Recent Recipients – is there a way to disable Mail poaching surnames from my emails and inserting them into address book automatically?

    What I would do is to fix the problem in Address Book. Separate the name into the proper first and last name fields. Because even if you fix the problem with it duplicating the last name, you may still have problems elsewhere and in the future.
