Try this! It worked for me - although the email address I used was a forwarded business email address (eg. firstname@mybusiness.com) forwarded to my name@gmail.com account - but it might work with your hotmail account too. With this method, it will always show the SAME profile photo, what you set for your gmail account. Use your Desktop computer / Laptop. ...

Go to Contacts. Search so that you can see both/all of the contacts you want to merge on the one results screen. Click the checkbox on the left hand size of the screen for the contacts you want to merge. From the More menu (at the top of the list of contacts), choose Merge Contacts. Like this:

I am quite surprised by all the complicated answers implying some extra tools! Every email you receive has its address added to "All contacts" (as opposed to "My Contacts") in the Contacts part of Gmail. Export that one and you're done (or I missed something in your question).

Instead of separating multiple email addresses with a comma, you should separate them with OR, as per this Gmail help document. Matches: from:(s******9@icloud.com OR s*******9@gmail.com OR s*******m@yahoo.com) Do this: Delete it

In the contact for John Doe, you need to add a nickname John Doe. Then you will be able to type John Doe in the To field, and the contact will show as John Doe instead of Mary Jane. In other words, the names seem to take the following precedence: Nickname Google+ name Contact name Stupid, I know, but at least it works.

While Lipis' answer still works, there's another method as well. With the message open, hover your mouse pointer over the sender's name. An info card will pop up. If the address is not already in your contacts, you can click the "Add to Contacts" button to open a contact edit form with the name and email address already filled out. (The Add and invite ...

Based off of @jacob-jan-tuinstra's answer. Made some minor modifications to suit my needs perhaps others would find it useful. Uses search, doesn't break up by labels and also does chunking for large inboxes.

The problem is summed up in the postscript to this post by Drummond Reed here: Postscript: logging into my personal Gmail account tonight, I noticed they have a new UI for Contacts. And guess what?

YES ... but, not using Google Contacts itself. On my computer, I have Google Contacts sync'd with MS Outlook, which can do a thorough search of the data in my contacts. I also use Lookeen, which can find the data in my contacts. On my phone, I just found out that there are 3rd party apps that will do a thorough search of my Google Contacts. It is ...

I am assuming that you are sending the mail via Gmail's standard web interface, and that your "funny name" for the recipient is defined in your corresponding Gmail (or Google) Contacts entry for that person. I think that the only solution is to manually edit the recipient details in the Compose window, before hitting Send. For example, if you start typing "...

No. That type of functionality is usually (read: virtually always) exclusive to sites with social networking functionality (like Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, etc.), and any functionality of that type is seldom found in anything beyond sites specifically designed for that purpose (exception: IM/chat).

According to Google support a contact can have up to 500 fields.

Short of deleting your Google+ profile, you cannot. There is no setting within Gmail to remove or hide that set of contacts. Some custom CSS might allow you to hide them, but they won't actually be removed.
