    OE Prints My Name Wrong (6.0)

    When I print out an e-mail in Outlook Express 6.0, my name appears in the upper left-hand corner of the page as it should but without the last letter of my surname.

    I've examined Tools/Accounts/Properties/User Name. My name is entered correctly there. Where else do I go in Outlook Express to correct this minor but irritating problem? I already deleted and recreated by e-mail account. The error in my last name persists. Help appreciated and thanks.

    Re: OE Prints My Name Wrong (6.0)

    No, my surname is short (5 letters). This problem doesn't exist elsewhere. In fact, I use Outlook Express on my office machine and it prints out my name correctly. So why doesn't Outlook Express print my name correctly on my home machine? Any suggestions of where to look to correct this error? There doesn't appear to be an *.ini file associated Outlook Express, for exampe...

    Thanks.

    A friend of mine wanted to change his outlook express name from CHARLES to CHUCK - had to go to his ISP as they somehow controlled it.
