I know what the entry FAQ says; I wrote it in July last year after some 
basic research and a cursory look at how a limited sample of some 
versions of the MS MUA products worked, following a spate of postings 
to this list about the displayed From field MS MUA users were seeing.

If you have definitive knowledge about such products then you will note 
that the FAQ entry invites you to add to the sume total of human 
knowledge when it says:

It appears that not all version of MS Outlook have this behaviour. If 
you know of versions that do or do not, then add the information to 
this FAQ page.

Well, that is reassuring.
