Currently our GAL in Exchange 2003 is showing names as "Lastname, Firstname ."
I understand this comes from the DisplayName property in AD. Our users like
having their name show up to their recipients as "Firstname Lastname," but they would prefer to have the names in the GAL sorted by last name.

Is there a solution to display GAL to the "Lastname, Firstname" format while sending emails so recipients receive emails as "Firstname Lastname" format?

Thank you in advance....
