Exchange tags "From" as email address and not users name.

Hello All,

I recently just finished an upgrade from Exchange 2003 to 2007 and that went well. However when a user sends an email externally and it is revieved in the remote users Outlook the "From" is the users email address and not there name. How can I correct this?

Is this to external users?
Exchange shouldn't be doing that by default.
I presume it was working correctly with Exchange 2003?

Yes, this is to external users. Internal users see the employees name in Outlook in the message "From" field which is what is desired when a user sends a email externally.

Prior to the upgrade to Exchange 2007,it was displaying the users name externally and not just the email address.

do you have any transport rules configured on the server??
basically what i understand is P2 header is missing....

if you do not have any transport rules.. i guess there would be some 3rd party application on the exchange server causing the Issue....

I confirmed the transport rules exist and compared them to another client of mine. They are idential.

This client is running Symantec Information Foundation Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange and I compared the configuration to that of another client of mine. It is identical. I also disabled the services for SIFMSE then tried sending another test message. Same result.
