Outlook 2003 not displaying email addresses in inbox

I have an outlook 2003 connected to sbs 2003 - in the inbox in the 'From' field it displays the display name of the sending email address which is right, i want to be able to see the email address as well. I added the 'Email account' field to the inbox columns but that just shows 'Microsoft Exchange Server' for every message.
I have seen on the Internet various people asking the same question - there must be a way to do it i would have thought?
Interestingly, Outlook 2010 connected to Exchange 2007 does display the senders email address when you add that field?

thanks
Andrew

Ask you Your Exchange administrator to change your display name to include your email address.

sorry you have misunderstood - i am talking about all the email that arrives in my inbox, not my email display name.

I've done a bit of reading and everything I've seen points to you needing to add a custom configuration file.  There are several out on the web that you can try but I've found two that include easy step-by-step instructions in addition to the download file.

"Show sender’s e-mail address as a column in message view"
at http://www.howto-outlook.com/howto/viewsenderaddress.htm.  

"Adding Extended MAPI Fields to Outlook" at http://www.slipstick.com/exchange/adding-extended-mapi-fields-to-outlook/#install.

I hope they help.
