Display Name Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are running Exchange 2010 sp ru 3v3 and host Exchange for multiple companies in a single AD forest/domain. Our account creation standards include the convention of using “Last Name, First Name” for the display name. One our clients is willing to have names displayed in this "Last Name", "First Name" format in the Global Address List, but prefers that messages from their users be displayed in their mail clients in the “First name” “Last Name” format instead. Is there a way to accomplish that?

    Please don't flame me, as I am being directed to ask this question. Thanks.
