Help please, when an email arrives from someone who I know and have added to my contacts, including filling in the email Display As section, how can I get this description to be shown when the email arrives and not the actual address or the name the sender has given him or herself:confused:

The display name is controled by the sender, not the recipient (you) and can't be changed. Sorry. If you are doing this to sort or group, you can add the email address to the view using the instructions here and sort on it.
