Regardless of whether or not I check "Display only Display Names from Address Book" in Options, I see the email address of the sender, NOT their Display Name. I know for a fact folks have Display Names set (verified in OE), and I know that IMAP can show them (again, from OE). I have done two clean Reinstalls, and still having this problem. I THINK this is a separate problem from Bug 247333. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Load TBird 2.Logon to IMAP account 3.Look at Inbox Actual Results: SENDER________________________________________SUBJECT email@example.com__________________________Want to Go Out Tonight? Expected Results: SENDER________________________________________SUBJECT Simpson, Jessica______________________________Want to Go Out Tonight? This is the newest install version of TBird. No Extensions added.
The name that's shown in the received message does not have anything to do with the address book, it's taken from the From: header in the message itself. If you're asking for the address book display name to be used, this is a dupe of bug 243631. If that's not what you're asking for, then select the message in question and View | Message Source (from the menu). How does the From: header appear? You specifically mention IMAP; do you also have a POP account? If so, does it or does it not exhibit this problem?
Is this IMAP account on AOL? See bug 331425 & bug 370740 -- a fix was just checked in for those problems, will be in place for TB 2.0. Not sure if your problem is the same, however.
