Change Outlook Mailbox name

    Question

  • Hello,

     

    how can I change the name Outlook shows under ALL MAIL ITEMS  where there is Mailbox - user    

    I want to change the user part and name it differently, is there an option which does this and then I just restart Outlook and updates automatically, maybe from Exchange server 2010

    I just want to change the display name but I could not find an option in Outlook to do that

     

    Thanks

  • You can't change that for use in Outlook only.
    It is a one setting applies everywhere. Therefore you would have to change the information in Exchange, which will affect how the name is displayed in the GAL and on outbound emails.

  • so can't I make it look different only on the address book at least as now there are 2 entries with the same name and surname and you cannot see which e-mail they represent

  • Update the Display Name so you then have something like Joe Bloggs - NY Office, Joe Bloggs - LA Office.

    That won't change the e-mail address.

  • yes but it will change the sender display name and when I will receive an e-mail from him I will see from Joe Bloggs - NY Office which is not nice

  • That is your only option.

    Display name is exactly that - your display name.

    As Simon said, the only option is to change the Display Name on Exchange server.
