Hello All,

I am using Outlook 2003 and have an interesting problem.  I would like to have Outlook remove my email address from the "From" line in emails that I send and replace my email address with my first and last name.  Is this possible?

Hi, Nick.

Do you mean you want it to say

    John Doe

on the From line instead of

    John Doe [john.doe@address.com]

Are you in an Exchange environment or are you using Outlook with POP?

Hello,

You hit the nail on the head.  I want the from line to say John Doe only.

We are using Outlook with POP

Hi, Nick.

Sorry to be so slow getting back to you on this.  I've researched all the avenues I could think of for doing this and it doesn't seem there is any solution.  Outlook inserts that information in each message as it's sent.  I cannot find any documented setting or parameter that changes the way the line is formatted.  I also looked for a scripted solution (i.e. some means of changing the behavior via code).  The problem is that the property holding that information in the message is read-only.  Sorry, it just doesn't seem like this is possible.
