This would require the Sender field to accept a GECOS fileld. While
while allowed by RFC 2822 which defines the Sender header as:
sender = "Sender:" mailbox CRLF
mailbox = name-addr/addr-spec
name-addr = [display-name] angle-addr
angle-addr = [CFWS] "<" addr-spec ">" [CFWS] / obs-angle-addr
is not supported by any MTA or MUA that I've run across here.
Note: I don't have Outlook.
