Description

in the contacts column, can you display the email address first, and then the contact name ?

because contacts are often changing nicknames, but never email address, so it's more convenient

(or maybe clicking on the title of the column 'contacts' can alternate between 'email (name)' and 'name (email)'

I believe you should be able to view just the nickname you've assigned your contact, it would look a lot more tidier.

Sam, what do you display in your contact list? Screen name (Alias)?. Paul, do you display Alias alone?

I'm wondering if following that preference fro display in the log viewer would be a solution which would please most people. Certainly that would work fine for me (I display just Alias).

Replying to evands:

Paul, do you display Alias alone?

Yep. I think it'd work best how you suggested it.

(In [16278]) Contact names displayed in the log viewer now follow the contact list ("long") name display format whenever possible. Fixes #4274.
