Still no answer? This problem is driving me crazy as we too want the name and

e-mail on everything. Why isn't there a simple rule creator for how the

display name is created like #name <#email> or #name #phone or whatever based

on the other information on the contact. Other software companies can write

code like that, can't Microsoft?

Why? What can you do with a PRINTED email address?

When people need an e-mail address, I try to look them up in old e-mails or

my distribution lists. It would be nice if they were listed there instead of

just the name. Otherwise, I have to click properties and try to guess out of

the 3 or four e-mail addresses listed which one is correct (that's how we

have it set up anyway).

Forgive me for sounding a bit dense but what has this to do with PRINTING an

email address?

I thought you meant printed to the screen. If that's not what you meant, then

what are you talking about? Why did you even bring it up?

Because the OP wants PRINTED email addresses on PRINTED emails, to which you

concurred. My question was "Why"? What can you do with a PRINTED email

address? Answer - Nothing!

The simple answer is that the sender controls the display of the address in

the TO: field.

You can change the Display Name for your contacts but it has no effect on

what you receive from others.
