    Ok I am not an exchange expert, but have been tasked with setting something up on one of our companies exchange server.

    However I am having a problem with something that should be so simple.

    I want to change the display name of a users email so when it appears in the inbox it shows From: "Joe Bloggs XYZ Ltd." instead of From: Joe Bloggs

    I have gone through everything I can find, but have hit a brick wall.

    What I have tried so far:

    First Name:
    Last Name:
    Display Name:
    Description:
    Renamed the account in AD:
    Simple Display Name:
    Alias:

    but email still shows as from "Joe Bloggs"

    Argh!

    Now dont I feel like a fool

    It appears that changing the display name is correct, however it simply takes a little while for it start showing correctly.

    D'oh!
