Hello,

I am a new user of Office 2007 - a stright jump from 2000.

My question may be a two fold question: Address Book as and sending out

emails:

1. Emails from Outlook includes the Name as well as email address to each

recipient;

2. Every contact in the address book, by default has a "display as" with the

name and email address.

- I would like all recipients to see only the Name of other person and not

the email address.

For the "Display as", I figured I can edit it manually, but I fear once I

Sync it with by blackberry it will go back to the default "display as" so, I

would like to change the "Display As" to default and save only the first and

last name.

Hope you can guide/help and appreciate your help in advance!

If you really think this matters (and it doesn't because the email address

is always available to every recipient in the email header), you simply set

the Email Display As field for each contact to be in the format you want.

The only way you can really hide other recipients' email addresses is to use

the BCC field.

I don't think BB will affect it. You can use a macro to change it - see

http://www.slipstick.com/contacts/emaildisplayname.htm - but its pointless -

what recipients see depends on their mail client and unless you use the BCC

field, they will have access to the addresses.
