Account nickname again for @Barkley_Hound

@Barkley_Hound, the reply link was disabled on my previous post so I had to make this new one.

 

I did read your previous email where the nickname is not changed in the Personal Info setting, which is why I also mentioned the mailbox settings but I should've clearly stated that I followed the directions on how to change the Sending Name. My name is set up as MarissaH but for some reason, it keeps showing up as "Me," which is a nickname that I used long ago. Is there any other place I need to change it? I don't think it's a cache issue because I cleared it on each browser that I use but it still happens. Even if I email someone I hadn't emailed before, replies come back as being from "Me" instead of "MarissaH."

It may be picking it up from a contact card. Everyone has their own set so any changes you make only affect what you see.

Create a new email and start entering your address in the TO box. When your name appears on the dropdown list hover over it and click the X that appears. This must be done in classic mail.

If the name does not appear with the address then try "m" to get "me" to appear.

Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.

Make sure your phone and email are current. There is no way to verify or recover an account without them.

I couldn't get my contact card that uses "Me" to appear but I do thank you for your help. I think the people I reply to will have to follow these steps on their end to get rid of "Me." ;-)
