    I am not sure on what you mean by "expanded Email address". please define and.or post a image?

    When you state "all email" is this incoming or outgoing or both?

    see attached screen capture. Note that inbox only displays the the "Display Name" not the Email address. Is it possible to make the From column display the Email address instead of the "Display Name"

    These are controlled by the "Sender". as how the address is displayed in their editor.

    If you are using Outlook, in contacts this is controlled by the "Display as" in the contact right side of the General tab, on YOUR out going email.

    I am in the process of changing MY display as the User Name only, to assist in the blocking of the harvesting of the email addresses.

    In theory you could rewrite each display name as messages arrived to show the address with code like this. But, actually, Outlook does not allow it, so this code does not compile:
    <pre>Sub FixUpSenderName()
    ' This doesn't work because SenderName is READ ONLY
    Dim msg As MailItem
    Set msg = ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)
    If InStr(1, msg.SenderName, "@") = 0 Then
    msg.SenderName = msg.SenderName & _
    " <" & msg.SenderEmailAddress & ">"
    End If
    If Not (msg Is Nothing) Then Set msg = Nothing
    End Sub
    </pre>

    Next idea would be to write the above name+email to a custom (user-defined) field and show the user-defined field in the Inbox instead of the From field. I don't use user-defined fields, but maybe someone else could comment on the pros and cons of such an approach.
