The "legacyExchangeDN" value is shown in the "From" field instead of the "Simple Display Name" in an email message in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a user A account in a non-English Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment.
  • You create a user B account in an English Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment.
  • You configure the DisplayName property of user A to use a double-byte character set (DBCS).
  • You configure the SimpleDisplayName property of user A to use a single-byte character set (SBCS).
  • User B accesses a mailbox by using Outlook 2010 that is running in ANSI mode with an online profile.
  • User A sends an email message to user B.
In this scenario, you expect the Simple Display Name value for user A to show in the From field. Instead, the legacyExchangeDN value or the last Common Name value of user A is shown.

Note This issue does not occur in an Exchange Server 2003 environment.
