    ddressees true email address (outlook 2k)

    I'm not sure whether this is an Outlook question, or a generic mail question.

    It looks as if the originator uses a name from his address book, and the message shows him the name rather than the actual e-mail address about to be used.
    If the recipient has the same name in his address book, it looks as if he is shown his own mapping of the name rather than the originators.

    From the message at the recipients end, is it possible to see the actual e-mail address used rather than any mapping?

    Thanks

    Open the message then View > Options

    Does that give you the info you are after?

    Well, I wouldn't say "Options" was the obvious thing to look under!

    If it is something you need or want to do on a regular basis, customize your (open message) toolbar and add Options to it. . .

    Re: ddressees true email address (outlook 2k)

    Out of curiosity, if you right-click on the name and select Properties, what do you get? I would expect a dialog showing the Display and the actual address. Or is this the information that's not showing?

    Thanks.

    I am strictly a busy user and so do not always follow through properly on some of this stuff. What we think happens is that everybody is shown the mapping that applies to them. So someone sends me a message using his personal contact list and copies John Doe. It uses his contact details from his local folder to deliver the message, and makes visible Doe, John when you look at the header (view header switched on). I inspect that name at my end, and the exchange server presents me with its version of all of the details of that person.

    I have no idea whether it uses the name John Doe to do its look-up, or the full email address that is lurking in the invisible header.
