SYMPTOMS

When receiving a message from the Microsoft Mail for AppleTalk Networks server by way of version 1.0b of Microsoft Mail Connection for PC and AppleTalk Networks, versions 3.0, 3.0b, and 3.2 of Microsoft Mail for Windows display the To: field with the addressee's mailbox name rather than the friendly name.

For example, if the friendly name is Administrator and the address is NET/PO/Admin, the To: field displays "Admin," not "Administrator."

The Microsoft Mail for PC Networks MS-DOS workstation displays the correct name in the To: field. If you move the message into the .MMF file from the Windows client (thus deleting it from the MS-DOS client's Inbox) and then you invoke inbox shadowing, the MS-DOS client displays the mailbox name in the To: field.

CAUSE

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in version 1.0b of Microsoft Mail Connection PC and AppleTalk Networks. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
