From Address with Outlook and Exchange

A nice easy one for somebody.

When using Outlook and Exchange what is it that defines the From: address as seen by the recipient.  I want it to appear as User Name, Company Name.  I'd assumed it was Display Name, but changing that doesn't appear to make any difference.

Hi johnalphaone,

it's a combination of firstname & lastname, in your case you can choose, first name as "username" and lastname as "company name"

[ IN EXCHANGE ]it's a combination of firstname & lastname, in your case you can choose, first name as "username" and lastname as "company name"

[ IN OUTLOOK ] it's Display name you are asked in the first step of adding your mail account.
If you already have an account and want to modify it laters, you can simply click on tools, accounts, select the account you want to modify click on properties and under userinformation frame change the value of "Name" this is what will appear in outgoing mails "from" field. (applies to outlook express)
