I want only the person's name to be displayed when I send an email. But for some reason their email address is also displayed. When I set up the contact, I only entered their name in the display field in the contact folder. Yet their email address is also displayed when sending them email.

Start new email. Type their name in the "To" field. As you're typing, the name will drop down in a list. Right click and delete. If they are in your contacts, open. In the "Display as" field, remove the email address so it only shows their name.

I had every email coming into my inbox listed as one of my contacts and tried everything to rectify the problem. I just deleted the "culprit" name and everything is working fine now. I added the contact back in and all is still well.

the name of the contact whose name i am trying to change does not appear in the account settings box; only my email address. Any ideas how to really change the display name of the sender in outlook?

These instructions are for changing YOUR display name when sending e-mails, as far as I know, there is no way of changing the display name of someone SENDING e-mails to you

Well that's a problem. I've seen several different Display Names for the same Sender in Outlook. Even when the Sender is in my Contacts list, Outlook will quite often show a different Display Name, not to mention the differences in the Display Names of Recipients. Plays heck when you sort and collect through 5 years of emails for a given name. You would think Outlook would assign whatever Display Name you have in your Contacts List for a given email address, but no that would be too simple.
