Okay, perhaps you'll all think I'm stupid, but this is driving me bananas and I have NO idea how to change it.

When receiving an email from someone in the "From" column it has the name that they've assigned themselves in their own application, or webmail options. I was wondering if it's at all possible to force mail to use the names in my address book.

For example, someone in my address book is Adam Prezes

When he sends me an e-mail, from his home computer, under the "From" column it says "A.P."
When he sends me an e-mail, from his work computer, under the "From" column it says "Adam P."

Both are from the same email address.

I'd like it to say Adam Prezes all the time.

Is this possible? Is there something SUPER simple I've forgotten? I'm going crazy.
