At home I use Outlook 2010 with the newest version of Outlook connector to access my mails. When I am at work, I log directly into Hotmail via the internet.

When I send mails from Outlook, the 'sent to' name is correct, and the mails arrive at their intended destination. However, when viewing my 'Sent' folder in Hotmail, the name of the person I sent the mail to is always my name rather than the addressee. When I send a mail directly from Hotmail, the 'sent to' name does display correctly in the Sent items folder. This is an inconvenience as when I am at work (or another location using Hotmail via internet) I have problems finding specific mails in my Sent items folder as they all appear as they were sent to me.

I suspect that this is a bug with the connector.

I would appreciate any assistance in getting this issue resolved.

There is a bug in the connector and they are aware of it. A fix is in the works but there is no ETA for it.

Thank you for the response. I will look forward to the Connector fix.

Thank you for the response. I will look forward to the Connector fix.

Does anyone know if the fix has been released yet? I am having exactly the same problem as the original poster although I'm using Outlook 2003.
