    Wrong Name Used.


    I use a Gmail address in Windows Mail & Calendar App. on my Win 10 laptop. Sample name for this post. Peter Brady.
    If I send an email it gives my real name that I use on other accounts.
    If I send an email from Peter Brady's account in Firefox Portable, It displays as Peter Brady.

    Perhaps there's some guidance in
    Add or Delete Accounts in Mail App - TenForumTutorials
    If not then I think your best bet might well be posting your question in that tutorial thread.

    You might want to check Advanced setup in the tutorial's step 11. I think the relevant field is Your name in the third diagram but things are labelled differently in my MSOutlook so I cannot be sure.


    Best of luck,
    Denis

    I have just remembered it was showing the name of my outlook.com account. I deleted that account because Msoft locked it. I then installed the app from M Store and all is OK. Thank you both.
