Outlook 2016 Change how Outlook shows me contacts in emails

Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
For emails I have received, if any of the senders or recipients are in the global address book, Outlook displays the people in a friendly way. For example, if the email was sent by Bob M Smith and Bob M Smith is in the global, then instead of seeing "b.m.smith@work.com" I'll see "Smith Bob M Accounting" or similar.

Is there a way to change how Outlook displays these kinds of names, either with VBA, templates, custom forms, or anything?

Ideally, I'd like to see "Smith Bob M Accounting (b.m.smith)".

Thank you for any suggestions!
