Using Outlook Professional 2010: I recently received an email from a person I know, but for some odd reason, the name that appears in the From field is garbage. Here is what I am seeing:

    From: Nonsense name <real@email_address>

I would like to change the nonsense name into the sender's name, but have not been able to figure out how to do this. Please offer suggestions. Thanks.
