I have Email problem, its including my real name

Just noticed that my out going emails are including my first & last name .

 

I've been hacked before and have no wish for this information to be included in my out going emails.

 

So how do I remove my real name from being sent.

 

 

thx

Re: I have Email problem, its including my real name

If you use an email client, you'll have to change the name section from your account's settings. If you need help doing that, you need to post what client you use. (Mac Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird, Live Mail, etc.)

For webmail, you'll have to sign in. Click on the Gear (Settings) on the top right, and choose Mail Settings. You'll get an Options tab. Click on Mail Accounts under "Advanced Options" Here you'll need to change the Sending Name. Click save. Sign out and sign back in to ensure the settings have been changed.
