I experience an annoying issue in Mail when creating a new message. The middle name does not show up in the auto-fill address field when creating an email on my MacBook (OSX10.6.1). Example: a name in my addres book "ABC van der DEFG" shows as "ABC DEFG" in the email "to" address field. All address book entries with a middle name cause the same problem. Another user on the same MB with the same MobileMe synch'd address book has no problems at all. Users on my MacPro (also 10.6.1) also have no issues (same synch'd address book). It seems to be only occuring under my user account on one mac... I use the middle name for 'van' and 'van der', pretty essential in Dutch names.

Does anyone have a solution or an idea? Is there a prefpane or a cache I should reset under this specific user account?
