For a long time now, Outlook users have had to put up with bulk email like this:

The Subject line
organisation-division-list-bounces@lists.teamlist.net.au on behalf of real.sender@somewhere.com

 

That “-bounces” suffix is misleading and the “on behalf of” bit just clutters things up. None of these problems show up in current versions of Outlook Express, Gmail or Thunderbird. It’s just an Outlook thing.

But I found a solution. The article that gave me the impression that this problem was unfixable, had been updated. Wish I’d seen this earlier… but as of yesterday Teamlist posts look better in Outlook. Now you get:

The Subject line
Real Name <real.sender@somewhere.com>
