(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256986/EN-US/ )Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
When a user receives a message from the Internet, the user's SMTP address appears on the To or the Cc line instead of their display name.
By default, if the recipient's mailbox is on the same server as the Internet Mail Service, the To, Cc, or Bcc fields, which are all P2 properties, are not resolved against the global address list.
In order to force the resolution of all P2 properties against the global address list, you need to turn on the ResolveP2 registry value.
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
