PidTagTransmittableDisplayName Canonical Property

Applies to: Outlook 2013 | Outlook 2016

Contains a recipient's display name in a secure form that cannot be changed.

Associated properties:
PR_TRANSMITABLE_DISPLAY_NAME, PR_TRANSMITABLE_DISPLAY_NAME_A, PR_TRANSMITABLE_DISPLAY_NAME_W
Identifier:
0x3A20
Data type:
PT_UNICODE, PT_STRING8
Area:
Address

Remarks

These properties should be implemented by all address book providers. They contain the version of the recipient's display name that is transmitted with the message. For most address book providers these properties have the same value as the PR_DISPLAY_NAME (PidTagDisplayName) property. Providers that do not have a secure display name return PT_ERROR and MAPI changes the display name by adding quotation marks around the name.

A client application can use this property to prevent alteration or "spoofing" of entries. An example of spoofing is transmitting John Doe as John (What a Guy) Doe.
