Display names in Contacts

When I create a new contact and after that I type the email address, 
then Display name is written like this :  LastName FirstName(email). Is 
there a setting that I can change to eliminate the email address in the 
display name ? I would like to have the display name showing like this : 
LastName FirstName .

Right under the email field in the Contact Record.
How are you entering email addresses and not seeing it?

Display all messages?
Is there a way in Outlook 2002 to display all messages from all folders in one list?

Large Volume of Contacts

You could run into some performance issues unless you are really careful about how you set sharings etc in V1.2.
