Author/Date Display name for contacts in the "from" field

When I receive emails from someone that is already in my contact list I would like to have displayed in the “from” field in the preview pane the last name (or first name + last name) I have associated with that contact.

Is it possible?
Thanks

This already happens by default for me. Can you show me the headers of an example email and the name/email of the contact record it should match with?

What version of Scribe?

Thanks for your prompt reply.
F.y.i. I noticed that version 1.87 does work as I wish, version 1.88 doesn't. I'll send you tomorrow first thing, via email, what you're asking me and other stuff I checked.

I confirm: neither ver. 1.88 nor 1.89 test1 seem to work as we were expecting while ver. 1.87 does. Am I doing something wrong or there is a bug ? Thanks

I add some additional information that may help you:
ver 1.87: works nicely
ver 1.88: doesn't have the expected behaviour
ver 1.89: it does work if "from:" field displayed in the "Internet header" has the format:
firstname.lastname@provider.com
it does NOT work if that field has the format:
"display name" <firstname.lastname@provider.com>
