We are running Exchange 2013, when we send mail external the displayname is our email address, however internal this is fine.

This was configured like this on a Exchange 2010 but unable to find out the settings to correct this.

There is an AD attribute called displayNamePrintable and this is the value you should need to modify to change the way your External Name is displayed. Take a look at the link below which walks through setting this up. You will also need to run a powershell command to accomplish this. See link below for all details.

Simple Display Name to External

I have read this prior to posting this and maybe I am reading to much into this but our client sites have Exchange 2013 and their external display name is their full name but they have displaynameprintable as not set (as do we) so I am thinking that someone else prior made a change somewhere within ad for this as we have moved from exchange 2010 to 2013...

1.Open the Exchange Management Console.
2.Under Organization Configuration, select the Hub Transport option.
3.On the Remote Domains tab, double-click Default.
4.Click the Message Format tab, and then click to clear the Display sender's name on messages check box.
5.Click OK.

Its step for exchange 2010 but same thing will be apply on exchange 2013.
