    It is possible that Outlook is using the Nickname file rather than the Contact? When you are addressing the email, does the auto-complete kick-in?

    Yes I do have autocomplete on. I turned it off in the options menu. That did not change the way the field is displayed. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Looking further in Outlook Help, I found some references to the 'nickname' file. I did the following:
    Turn off automatic name checking and completion
    and turn off autocomplete name suggesting
    I also reset the nickname & automatic completion cache.

    I am still getting the <email addres> after the persons name.
    I know we are close...
    Thanks

    Post a screen shot of one the emaill addresses from the Contacts listing showing the "Display as frame".
    You may what to block out the "ISP" or the user's account name of the address be for posting.

    Mine works as designed, if the address is NOT listed in the Display as" pane in the contacts then it is NOT displayed in the email to frame.
    Do you by chance have more that one "PST" file open or a "Address book" also being used by Outlook?
