I am running Outlook with Exchange 2003.  Have have a user named Robert Smith and his user name is Robert Smith.  Employees commonly refer to him as Bobby.  Is there a way he can be found in the global outlook contacts list as bobby without changing his username?

I believe if you add an additional X.400 address for his account and call it Bobby, it may do the trick.
