Default Gmail, IMAP, BIS: is there a way to control the appearance "From"?

Please Login to Remove!

We recently switched from BES/Exchange to BIS/Google Apps/IMAP. When a user sends an email from their Blackberry device, the from field shows up as an abbreviated version of their email address, not their name, or name + email address the way it does with other carriers/devices.

Does one have any control over what displays in a sent message received by Gmail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc?
