mail.app – Apple Mail Show Title versus Contacts Entries (a number of of them mentioning the identical email handle)


The Topic says virtually all of it …

I’ve, for good causes, a number of entries in my Contacts checklist that share email addresses. (My intention is to not talk about, whether or not it is a good or unhealthy concept. I simply have them, and I would like them this fashion.)

Furthermore, I exploit a number of (learn: a couple of) iCloud identities in my Contacts handle e-book. (Consider this as one major/non-public id and one id that’s used only for sharing amongst a number of customers, which aren’t essentially current on the identical laptop.) So, sharing email addresses amongst Contacts entries may even be throughout totally different iCloud identities. (That is potential and, I feel, an excellent risk.)

I wish to perceive, nonetheless, what the accountable algorithm exactly does that truly decides which “lengthy identify” / “full identify” will likely be displayed in Apple Mail—within the varied panes—for an email handle that happens in a number of entries within the above-mentioned setting, presumably spreading throughout the included iCloud identities.

Is there anyone knowledgable on the market studying this?
