    Internet mail name

    Using Outlook 2000. My company's corporate standard for mailbox names is <font color=red>surname forename</font color=red>

    When mail gets sent outside across the internet the sender is shown as <font color=red>mailboxname <internetaddress></font color=red>

    This means that people think my surname is my forename! Is there any way to change the sender field without altering the mailbox name?

    Re: Internet mail name

    the display name, not the actual internet address, correct?

    only the admin can change either. he can also change it so display names are not sent to the internet, only email addresses.

    Re: Internet mail name

    Are the <font color=blue>display name</font color=blue> and the <font color=blue>mailbox name</font color=blue> one and the same thing? The mailbox name is a corporate standard and therefore by definition correct <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> but if the display name could be different ... <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>

    Can the administrator turn off sending the display name on a per user basis?
