Sending emails

Can anyone tell me why all my emails are being sent as "me" instead of using my name.

And probably more importantly, how I can change it to use my name?

What you're seeing is a byproduct of using Conversations mode. Once you turn this off, you should be set. You can also check out our Tips and Tricks post on updating your Sending Name if needed.

Re: Sending emails

The other person in the conversation is actually seeing my name though, and not "me"?

I'm fine with it if that's the case.

Correct, the other person sees your "Sending name".
