Request courtesy of Jamal: How to view contacts by email address in Windows Messenger 2009?
I have recently installed msn live messenger 2009, and to my surprise saw that all my contacts are being viewed by their nickname. Is there anyway possible to change the setting to view contacts by their “e-mail” address?
Could it be possible that, that feature has been removed?

I noticed this too, it’s ridiculous, people always have stupid display names that change regularly so it’s a lot easier to view by email address. But it seems this feature is gone in the latest version of messanger.

Ugh. To say I was … annoyed, at the removal of this, would be an extreme understatement.
However, I’ve come up with this nasty workaround:
- Open up the Options panel (Tools > Options).
- Go into the new Layout section.
- Select to “Label contents by:” their “First and last name”.
- Then hit “OK” to save the settings.
- Back in the main window, right-click a contact and “Edit contact”.
- Copy their “Instant Messaging Address”, which will be greyed out.
- Go into the Contact section, and paste their e-mail address into the “First name” field.
- Click “Save”, and you’re done.
You’ll have to do this for every contact on your list, which will no doubt be time-consuming, but at least you’ll be able to see who people are.

This really does annoy me, I tried the beta before and then reverted back to the old one only because the option was missing, now I hear that the full release is just the same.
Why the hell would they remove something so used?
