Hi All,

Wierd issue here that I can't figure out, a new user started that had a hyphen in their last name, created the user but they were unable to login to the network with the hyphen.

I removed the hyphenated part from their login name and email address since it was being cut off but left it in the display name only, everything was fine yesterday after I made those changes. now today from some reason the users display name is showing up as Last Last-Hyphen with the first part of the last name as their first name... when sending emails it shows up properly on on blackberries but in outlook it won't, I've gone back in to AD and removed the hyphenated part of the last name so it's just First Name Last name, rebuilt the offline address book multiple times and updated the system's but it still shows up Last Last-Hyphen even though all references to the Hyphen are removed
