Sender's name and address is not displayed in Outlook 2003



  • 1. Can't Edit Send/Receive Group
    Unable to edit the "all account" group. Additionally, an "operation failed" message is received when an attempt is made to edit the group. The symptoms equally apply when a new group is created...Appreciate any advice
  • 2. multiple emails sent when only 1 is intended.
    My email recipients report receiving 20 emails when I only send 1 to them. Outlook 2003 is my system. This happens more often if I am sending attachments. Please advise. best regards, Brian Maddox
  • 3. Multiple large OST files
    Hello! I am using Outlook 2003 and noticed I was low on disk space. I searched for all files over 1MB in size and came up with 34 files with names such as "{9C6F50A3-8C41-4962-8405-C6191F4DA2D0}.ost" that are 175MB to 204MB in size. Why are there so many of them? I have nine of them from nine consecutive days that are all identical in size, some of them are from the same day and are the same size, some of them are a month old. What gives? Thanks! Gregg Hill
  • 4. Unable to create data file
    I'm running Outlook 2002 SP-2. Sometimes when I want to create a .pst file, I get the message box "Unable to create data file". There is no message number or any other identifiable (searchable) information in the text box. I can sometimes get around this problem by shutting down Outlook and restarting, or launching some other applications (such as Explorer); suddenly the problem disappears and there is no problem in creating a new data file (FILE/NEW/OUTLOOK DATA FILE). There is plenty of disk space available. Any clue as to why this problem sometimes arises?

Sender's name and address is not displayed in Outlook 2003

Postby tezarin » Sun, 26 Feb 2006 02:39:30 GMT

Hi.  We have a problem in our office, when I send an email to everyone,
they can see it's from me, so the From section is not empty which is
normal.  What is not normal is when I send emails to 3 people, they say
the "FROM" part of the email they received from me is empty!

Please let me know what should I do to solve this problem.

Thanks for your message.  Sorry for not putting all the info, that was
my first post here.  I am trying to investigate that problem for one of
my co-workers: she uses Outlook 2003, SP1. No mode was found there.

She hasthis problem when she sends an email to 3 clients of hers and
that's it.  I am getting no error myself and sent email to other people
with no problem.

thanks in advance

Try creating a new mail profile for her, then. You still haven't included 
info on the kind of e-mail account(s) she uses, though.

In spam filters I can't find any way to add the "Diplay Name" of a sender to 
my junk mail folder to permanently delete it. As example. I receive 4 or 5 
pieces a day from: "Display Name" "At Home Typers" when in fact "At Home 
Typers" is only the Display Name, not the actual senders e-mail address. I 
would like to be able to have "At Home Typers" deleted everytime, regarless

Thanks for your help.

3.Display real sender address as in mail headers, instead of full name from address book

Is there a way to make Outlook display the sender's name as it occurs in a
mail's FROM header, instead of looking up the address in the adress book
and displaying the full name it finds there (if it exists there)?

I'm using Outlook 2003 to retrieve mails from two sources: an Exchange
server for all 'normal' internal and internet mail, and a POP server that
receives mails that are automatically generated by software running on
machines spread across a WAN.

The software sends mails with sender addresses similar to this in the
"From" header:

	"source 1" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >
	"source 2" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >
	"source 3" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >
	"source 4" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >

The address is always my exchange address (or actually an alias for it that
was entered in my domain account properties).  Changing that is not really
an option, because the mails go to several recipients, and if someone
replies to one of them the reply should arrive in my mailbox.

Outlook always displays my full name as sender like it occurs in the
exchange address book (despite the fact that the mails don't arrive through
nor are ever stored in Exchange), which sometimes makes it hard to
determine from which machine (or application) the mail really comes.

Instead of my name, I want it to display the sender name as it is in the
mail headers, i.e. "source 1", "source 2" etc., but without forcing me to
change the actual mail address that's being used.

Is there a way to accomplish this?
