I want to be able to display the sender's email address as well as their name
in the inbox "FROM" section of Outlook 2003. How do I do this?
Thanks, Diane

Actually that is not quite true. In this particular case Diane (or u) could
create a file named SenderName.CFG with the contents below in Notepad and
save it to \Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\FORMS\1033. From there,
follow these steps. (For what its worth, using this for the Inbox in
Exchange environments is not ideal. Works great for the Junk Email folder
though. :)

1) Go into Tools | Options | Other | Advanced Options | Custom Forms |
Manage Forms

2) Hit the Install button, and choose SenderName.CFG .install into your
Personal Forms Library

3) Hit OK several times to return to the main Outlook screen

4) Right-click on the Column headings in your Inbox (other any other folder)
and choose "Field Chooser"

5) Pull-down the scroll-bar and choose "Forms."

6) Set focus to your Personal Forms, choose the Sender Email Address Form,
then click Add

7) Drag and drop the From Email Address property into your column headings

This worked like charm on my Outlook XP. I will try it on my Outlook 2003
next week and I'm sure it will work there as well.
Thanks so much for you help.
