Thanks. I changed it, and I it seems to be putting recently used 
addresses closer to the top. It seems that the frequency also matters 
(if I emailed someone many times, it may come before a person I emailed 
just once but very recently). Is this the case?

In the meantime, you could add a "Copy Mailbox UUID" item in the Mailbox 
menu …
