Format of Name on Mail Forward


I have set up a simple email forwarding agent. After an email arrives the agent is run and simply send the email to another address.

I use the following formula in the Subject field

+ From + ": " + Subject

This works great for the Subject, but the name comes through as

CN=Joe Bloggs /OU=Support /OU=GB /O=DST C=US

Is there a way to just display the name "Joe Bloggs" ?

The from field is a name field, so you need to do a little manipulation to get a shorter version.  You are looking for the common name so your formula should be:

+ @Name([CN];From) + ": " + Subject

The @Name function extracts the Common Name (CN) from the FROM field.
