When I compose an email and enter the email address, if I enter the recipient's first name, Thunderbird automatically finds the recipient's email address from my address book. However, if I enter the recipient's last name, middle name, or any other name included in the address book, it does not deliver anything. For example, the email address of
Elizabeth Liz Smith can be only found by
Elizabeth, not others. If the name is saved as
Smith, Elizabeth, then it is only searchable by
Smith. That means, whatever comes first in the address book.
On the other hand, in Gmail, I can search by any name. Interestingly, in the address book of Thunderbird, I can search by any name.
Is there any workaround to enable the 'search-by-any-name' in the Thunderbird's composition window?
