Full email address showing on sent emails?

Using Outlook 2000 for email (I checked this time, Brian!).

In the sent file, *some* of my emails are not showing the full email address 
and only the name. Why is this so with some only? And how can I arrange that 
on all outgoing emails (as I compose them) and in the sent mailbox the full 
email address (including the @billyboggs.com part) is showing?

TIA

What I suspect is that you have the Display Name defined for some of your 
contacts to contain the address and for some you do not.  Open one contact 
of each kind and double-click on the e-mail address.  Do you see a "Display 
Name" (or similarly worded) field right at the top?

Doesn't seem to be it Brian. I only have a small address book, if that's 
what you mean by contacts. Most of my emails out are sent as replies to 
those emailing me. I'm sure their full email address must be sent (or else 
how could I reply correctly); it's just that I can't see the whole address 
in the header of the screen, or on the list of messages. I'm sure there must 
be a simple option I should select, but it beats me at present!

Certainly not.  In Outlook, there is no "address book".  The Outlook Address 
Book is simply a view of your Contacts folder that shows those contacts that 
have electronic addresses.  When I say
"contact", I mean an entry in your Contacts folder, which is where all your 
contacts should be.

> Most of my emails out are sent as replies to those emailing me.

That's your explanation, then.  The sender of the original message controls 
what you'll see in the From field and, hence, what you'll see in the To 
field when you reply.

You don't control how the other people's addresses appear when they send you 
messages.  Those people with names appearing in the From field set the Name 
field in their account settings.  Those people whose addresses appear did 
not.

This seems to be a bit of an oversight on MS's part.

The display of the originators name is definitely a valuable feature - for 
those senders that you know, but having the option to display columns 
containing the originators actual email address, and/or 'reply to' email 
address, would be more useful for messages of unknown origin.

Seems like such a simple feature addition - why wouldn't MS provide the 
option?

PS: I checked OL 2007 and the above option doesn't appear to be there 
either - at least not yet.

OK. Getting this now I think. So 'contacts folder' really does the same 
thing as 'address book' and this is only a nomenclature thing? Presumably 
the contacts folder is in the PST file together with the actual emails 
sent/received (I am devising a backup strategy, in passing). Also, if I opt 
to place details of a sender in my contacts folder, do I then have the 
option of toggling a setting to make their whole email address appear in 
future?

They do.  Open the message and double-click the sender.  You'll see the 
display name and the mail address.

Um, no.  The Contacts folder is where you keep your contacts, their street 
addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, fax numbers, mobile phone 
numbers, and so on.  The address book is an interface into that folder that 
allows Outlook to "resolve" electronic addresses (email addresses and fax 
numbers) to as to be able to construct a message that will be able to reach 
the recipient electronically.  The "address book" can show you many contacts 
folders, if you have them and your've enabled the option to have them appear 
in the address book view.

> Presumably the contacts folder is in the PST file together with the

Yes.  No need to devise a backup strategy when one already exists.  In its 
simplest form, it's just "copy the PST while Outlook is closed".  FOr a more 
complete discussion, see
http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/backupandrestore.htm

If you put a person into your Contacts folder, you can adjust the "Display 
As" field, which is what you'll see in the recipient field when you send a 
new message to that person.  What you see in the sender field when you 
receive a message will always be up to the sender.

Yes that works fine for a single message, but when you get approximately 
10,000 messages a day; well, you do the math.

Hi, When you set regarding an entity, the text that is pasted to the "regarding:" bar in the outlook shows only the "name" of the entity.
