  • Remove full user name from outbound email

    Hello,

    I have users here that do not want there full name on outgoing emails. Now, all outbound emails say <first and last name> [email protected]. How can I change this just for a few users? We have exchange/outlook setup.

    Not the best Exchange guru but why dont you add another alias to the users account such as:

    [email protected]

    and then set this as their default and also leave their:

    [email protected]

    So they can be reached on both addresses but when they send mails only the [email protected] is displayed

      Yes, I can do that, but for some reason it prints the full name before the email address.

      for example.

      Joe Blow
      [email protected]

      I have changed the email so it removes the last name

      so from [email protected] to [email protected]

      but it still says

      Joe Blow
      [email protected]

      I need to remove the Joe Blow part of the email.

        It's probably getting that from the display name.

        Try changing the display name from joe blow to just joe
