We send txt to cell phones from outlook, we have these cell users in our

contacts as well, (example: phonenumber@carrier.com) is named JOE, when JOE

reply's from his cell phone the FROM display name showing in outlook from the

cell phone shows numbers (example: phonenumer@carrier.com) how can I make it

show the name JOE that I have for it in my contacts? or maybe some script

can compare it to a list in a file and then re-write the info to outlook.

Thanks

The Outlook mail.SenderName property is read-only in the Outlook object

model.

You would need to use a lower level API such as Redemption

(www.dimastr.com/redemption) or Extended MAPI (C++ or Delphi only) to create

an item, copy the original to it and set whatever properties you want such

as PR_SENDER_NAME (this is low level stuff) and then save the item and

delete the original.

Any moderately advanced Outlook programmer could build code like that, but

this isn't the place to discuss that.
