We have a manager who wants names in Exchange address books to be listed as: Last, First, but when an email is sent out, it should be from First Last...

I don't think this is possible, so I thought I would check with you all...

What are my options... if any!

If I am reading this right, it says that I cannot have it both ways.

I cannot enter in Exchange as 'Last, First"... and then send out an email from "First Last"

This article seems to point to how to control how our address books display when we are looking for an address to send to. I am looking for information on how to change how MY name is displays on mail that I send:

If I am Last, First in Exchange in the "Display As" field, can I send email from: First Last?

No ts NOT possible ... your correct as what we see in GAL is the same Display Name we will see when the email comes in ...... what he can do is create Custom Contacts if he wants just a customization for himself but that will be a Huge Pain for anyone

So simply tell him that this cant happen ... Over
