The ACT! "salutation" field gets autopopulated with the first name.
I usually think of the salutation as being the prefix, e.g. Dr. Professor, Mr, Mrs., Ms. etc - see http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/salutation for example.
Since ACT! does not split out first and surames into different fields and uses the first name as salutation, how do you best handle the prefixes (Mr., Mrs., etc) in ACT!?

I'm using the latest (2009) version.
So just to clarify, if I type in say "Professor Joe Andrew Blogs Junior" in the contact field, it would figure out to parse it so the prefix is Professor, the suffix is Junior, the first name is Joe, the surname is Blogs, and the middle name is Andrew - but it would by default take the salutation to be "Joe"?
And I can turn on these prefix and suffix fields in the contact display, but I can't edit them?
