    Re: Troubleshooting User mailbox Alias name

    The display name in the email is the "Display name" tab in the AD.
    If you want that every user will be displayed as his alias - change the "Display name" field in the AD to be the same as the Alias.

    * The alias was created to give you some kind of shortcut when you type a new mail for someone.
