    Sender's name in From box (Ver 6 SR1)

    I've just installed a broadband cable link and now, I cannot get my name to display in the From box on new emails. Despite the fact that the name is correctly inserted in the User info in the Mail account properties window, Outlook Express insists on displaying the email address, not the user name.

    I feel silly but can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance, Geoff

    Hi, Geoff ~

    If your concern is that it will arrive to the recipient displaying your name rather than the address, as long as your name is entered under 'User Information' of the 'Properties' 'General' tab, then that is what will appear when your intended recipient receives their mail. You can test this by sending yourself an e-mail.
