Default Disabling contact list 9780/OS6

Please Login to Remove!

One really annoying thing in OS6 on my 9780...I subscribed to my BES account as well as my Hotmail account. When I select a contact to compose a message to...it will always show the full contact list 1st, which has both address books. I can filter the list to both, or either of the two, but would like to able to NEVER show my hotmail contact list without having to repeat that step each time. I just can't see where to configure that option, if it's even at all configurable. It's a waste of time to have to always select the next contact down, because the 1st one usually happens to be the same name, but in my hotmail address book - which I never use. Any thoughts?

Doesn't have anything to do with the question I started this thread with -- the things you posted don't address that issue at all.
