SMTP mail and personal names?

» close window

The Question is:

When sending an email to an exchange server the personal name does not appear
 in the from field, instead it is in the format of userid@domain.com.  A
 personal name has been set.  This is on our alphas running ucx v4.2 -eco 1.
However, if a message is sent from one of our vax servers OpenVMS 7.1 running
 MultinNet v4.0 rev b-x the personal name appears correctly.
Is there some setting in ucx to fix this?

The Answer is :

  TCP/IP Services V5.0A ECO 1 (with SMTP ECO C and later) offers access
  to the SMTP (RFC 822) From: and Return-Path: headers, which are how
  information similar to the personal name can be transmitted over to
  a remote system.  SMTP ECO C and later will append the personal name
  to the specified value.
