Hello Experts,

I have a customer who wants to add their company name to the from field of an email
So that it appears to be from “John Doe – company name”

My client uses Windows Small Business Server 2008 (Exchange 2007) for email.

It would be appreciated if the solution does not require us to update every user profile in the Active directory.

Hopefully someone knows of a solution for this.

Thank you in advance.

Regards
Piet Petersen

the only way is to indeed update the displayname of each user in AD

however this can be done in powershell

$mbxs = get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited

$mbxs | % { $dn = $_.DisplayName + " - Company"; set-mailbox $_ -DisplayName $dn}
