My problem is that this setting seems to get overwritten during the day sometime. I don't know what causes it, but it will always revert back to just firstname.lastname@example.org, no matter how many times I change it.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated. I am running Notes 5.012.
This value is set in the configuration document of the server. You need to go to the MIME -- Advanced -- Advanced Outbound Message Options tab. Change the RFC822 Phrase handling field to the value you want. Common name usually suffices.
