View actual email addresses not just names

I am trying to change the set-up of my Outlook so that I can see the actual email address on incoming mail.  In some cases I get the contact's name and in others the email address. I only want the address.  (Note:the reason is I am importing this info into Access and with the current configuration, I don't always see the email address).

Help?

Unfortunately, what you see is a "user preference" of the sender.

Hi mamadouthiam,

The property that contains the sender's address (SenderEmailAddress) isn't a choice you can make in customizing a view.  Outlook uses the SenderName property instead and as meintsi has already pointed out that's a preference of the sender.  You can't control it.  

Cheers!

If I can't change a view to see this, is there anyway to capture email addresses in one field so that they can be imported as such to Access?.  To clarify- I don't necessarily need to see the email address in Outlook, but need an easy way to get it into Access.  

Thoughts?

The field is available when you do an export.  Have you run through exporting to Access?

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Worked.  It doesn't work when you pull from Access but does work when you push from Outlook.
Many thanks.
