FIX: The LegacyDN of a user is displayed incorrectly in the From field in the Sent Items folder on an ActiveSync device

In an Exchange Server environment, consider the following scenario:
  • A user is hidden from the global address list (GAL).
  • The user has an Address Book Policy applied.

In this scenario, the From field on items in the Sent Items folder on an ActiveSync device display the LegacyDN of the user instead of the display name or SMTP address.
The issue occurs because of the LDAP search for the user is not resolved to their display name or SMTP address.
