Dealing with customers with initials or middle names?

Does anyone know how Campaign Monitor parses names?

For example, in "M C Hammer, mc@hammertime.com" will [firstname] be simply "M"? What about [lastname]?

Ditto "The Incredible Hulk, david.banner@angermanagement.com"...?

Thanks much!

Hmm... found the answer here, sorry: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=2386

FWIW, 1: yes, 2: I'm still not sure, 3: see 2.

Hi,

[firstname] is the first word so M, [lastname] is the last word, so Hammer and [fullname] would be the full record M C Hammer. With The Incredible Hulk it would be:
[firstname] - The
[lastname] - Hulk
[fullname] - The Incredible Hulk

Hope that helps clarify it!
