I'll get an email from Joe Blow and the from field looks like JB [joeblow@whatever.com]. This causes the From column in the email list pane to show JB as the sender, but I want it to say Joe Blow. So I add the sender as a contact and modify all the necessary fields like Full Name and Display Name and save. However, it still shows JB in the From column.

How do I get the From column in the email list to show the name as I want it to appear?
