Changing the display name of a user
This probably sounds like a dumb question, but I've tried everything I
can think of and it is not changing. I have a user who was setup with
a wrong display name (I thought it was Robert, it should be Rob).
I'm running SBS2003.
I have went into user manager and clicked on the change display name
and did it that way. It changed it on the user manager window, but
not when you log into OWA and send an email, the person that receives
the email still shows Robert as the sender. I have went into the user
properties and looked around there with out seeing anything. I didn'...Complaining abou the display name
Our organization is Exchange 2003/Windows 2003. Our users (bless their
hearts) wanted the GAL to be displayed in Last Name, First Name format.
Okay - no problem.
I performed the steps in this article and the GAL shows up as they requested:
Now when email comes in to them, the sender displays as "Last Name, First
Name" (imagine that), and they aren't happy about it. They want the GAL to
display "Last Name, First Name" and the incoming messages to show up as
"First Name Last Name".

Our new EXCH 2003 was running fine so far but some of the users having
problem sending email to recipient of same Org. After checking we found that
when we click their name from GAL, there are no email address or other
information in the address property except for Display Name. The Display
Name shown something like /o=xxx/OC=xxx/CN=xxx .... it seems like LDAP
information or something. Just wish to learn from you why is such thing
happen and what is the solution.
I would suggest checking your Recipient Policies and ensuring that no errors

Found this oddity on an outlook 2000 client accessing contacts from a
public folder. Basically the email address shows up find in the contact
window and sending a message to the contact seems fine, but if you look
at the address properties then each part (the address, display name and
type) each only have one character in them, and it looks like the first
character in each case.
It might be because the majority of the office use outlook 2002 so maybe
the contact is not correctly readable by outlook 2000?
That said, if you look at the contacts actualy fields, they appear to be
correct....My Contact Display Names in Outlook 2007
First, let me state I am not as computer savvy as you undoubtedly are, so
please help me in layman terms if possible. I updated to Office 2007 and use
Outlook Connector (most recent version downloaded). I always was able to
have just the display name show WITHOUT the person's email address showing.
Now, even if I go through list one by one and delete the email addresses next
to the name displayed, when I close Outlook and re-open it, the email
addresses are back next to the display name again. What am I doing
incorrectly? Thank you for your help.

I have 1 user that had his name spelled wrong, so we updated everything in
ADUC, including the 'Display Name', however, in the Outlook Address Book, it
still is listed as the original wrong last name.
I have rebuilt the OAB, updated the RUS, and double-checked all instances of
his last name (including ADSIEDIT).
The last name will still not update to the correct spelling.
Any help would be appreciated.

Are you looking at the GAL from a machine using cached mode? If so you may
still need to download the updated OAB to your Outlook.

Does anybody know if it is possible to change the display names of the CRM
entities themselves? We are willing to consider any customization route,
supported or not.
The reason we want to do this is that in our clients (financial) domain, the
term Account (as an example) has a specific meaning which is not the same as
it is the MS-CRM domain. Obviously we don't expect to be able to change the
actual name of the entity, but would expect to be able to change occurrences
of the word "Account" in the UI to be something that will not confuse the
business users. Frankly if we can'...Display Name in Outgoing SMTP mail

I know this question has been asked a few times, but I still do not feel I've read a clear explaination.

We recently installed CRM 4.0 as an upgrade from 3.0. When an email activity
is generated and sent, the resulting email in Outlook only shows the senders
email address in the From field, not the Display Name. As a matter of fact,
the display name is not even included in the message header.
We are using the CRM Email Router to send using SMTP. This happens whether
the email is from a User or Queue.
Anyone seen this yet? Is this a CRM issue or an Exhange issue.

In CRM 3.0 the attribute Display and Label names were not stored in
the CRM db, does anyone know if this has changed in 4.0? If not, does
anyone know of a tool or bit of code out there that can retrieve this
data? Any help would be excellent.
To clarify, the issue I'm having with 4.0 is that the data field call
"FieldXml" in the FilteredOrganizationUI view does not contain any
data. Has anyone else encountered this?? This was the place whereby
you could parse the XML and find things like Tab Names, Display Names,
etc. It's no longer at our disposal. What gives??
