Show name on outbound smtp email

I would like to know if there is a way to have my name show up as 'John Doe ', when people outside the company receive SMTP email from me? Instead of just Without going into designer, is it an ini setting?
It's a configuration document setting. Technically, that is RFC 822 vs. 821 compliance. You are currently using 821. You want to see 822. You set this under MIME/Advanced/Advanced Outbound Message Options. There is a field there for RFC822 Phrase Handling. You want to enable that, and most likely using DN as phrase (Distinguished Name).
