Question about Apple safari

1 Answer

My computer is an IMac and my browser is Safari.As we all know, e-mail messages are sent out as FROM "the user" and received as TO "the user". For some weeks now, my e-mail messages are identified by a completely different name (which happens to be a real name from a distribution list of a friend who habitually includes that list when sending out her most recent "Ya gotta see this" message).  A strange wrinkle is that recipients of my mail get my true name, and when I print out a copy of a message I have sent, the phony name that appeared on the screen now appears as my own name.  So I am the only one who knows what my computer has done to me.  I cannot find anyplace where I can delete this name and replace it with my own.  Any suggestions?

You probably just need to clear your previous recipient list in Mail.

In Mail, open the Window > Previous Recepients and remove all listed entries.

If the issue persists, open Address Book, find the name, and delete it.
