outlook 2010 - To: with email instead of name

In outlook 2010 when I find a person in the adress book the name of the person appears on the "to:" line.

Instead, is it possible somehow, that only the email adress is being showed in the "to:" field instead of name

You can change the "display as" field in your address book to show the address for the names you have in your address book. But, you cannot change the names for Global Address List contacts in Exchange or the formatting of the names in your Autocomplete or .NK2 file.

The problem is, if I create a new mail and pick a person in the adress book. In the TO field it than stands: Michael Johnsen (Michael Johnsen) - and also when they recieve the mail they also can see their name twice for some reason.
I still think this has something to do with the Display Name in your contacts. Open up one of the contacts that displays the name like that and re-enter the information for that user...or, remove the info in the display name section. If you're syncing a phone or ipod or something of that nature it may be causing this.
If I am in outlook 2010 and choose "contacts" in the left column and  click of one of the contacts. Than there is a field called "show as" where it stands Michael Johasen(michael.johnsen@firm.com) as if should

If I than go back to my inbox and create a new email and go to the adress book - than it again stands Michael Johnsen(michael Johnsen) - so the email is again lost even it is the only adress book there are ?

I have now even tried an pst repair, but nothing found.

If I export the same pst file to a different pc running outlook 2007, the exact same happening.
What happens if you create a brand new contact to an addressyou've never sent to before? Are you syncing with an iPhone or other mobile device. I've seen iPhones do something similar.
When I add a contact a new contact it works. No sync at all running
Try exporting the contacts to csv and reimporting to a different contact list in outlook (to keep them separate) and see what they look like.
