Emailed recipient seeing "Full Name" (from my contacts = what I called them) not their "File as" name.

Outlook  2007 connected to exchange

When I send someone an email their outlook is sending "Full Name" not their "File as" name.
This wasnt the case when I was just using Outlook as pop

Anyway to have the recipient not see their "Full Name" and see their File name instead?

Reason - Ive named people what I remember them by

"Full Name" Paddy-Plumber
File name as - paddy

its more personal that way.  I dont want them seeing what I amended their name to

Edit the contact and Change the "Display as" to what you want displayed or add your comments to the notes

There is no way to get exchange to ID the person as "File as" when you send an email ?

Outlook used to do this before I used exchange as far as I recall

What any recipient sees is the EmailDisplayAs value which has not changed in any Outlook version and has nothing to do with whether or not EX is used. Bear in mind that the EDA can be set to any value that you want which is what the recipient is going to see.
