Changing the From display name on marketing emails

How do I send email from an MS Exchange account so that the From name is something more descriptive.  For example, I regularly get email from AT&T which displays messages from "AT&T Account Manager"  (do.not.repy@someattdomain.com).  I would like to send our mail messages from info@mydomain.com but have the From field display as "My Company Bank & Trust".  How do I set up the MS Exchange / Active Directory account to do this?  I have tried the obvious, like changing the Display As field, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

once you change the displayname in AD, you have to let OABgen picks up the change, or you can manually rebuild the OAB, then in outlook, download the latest OAB.
