After you upgrade an Exchange 2000 Server computer to Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 1 (SP1), the Preserve sender's display name option in the global settings under Internet Message Formats may not work. If you clear the Preserve sender's display name option, the sender's display name is still exposed to the Internet receiver.
