Oddity in MAIL.....wrong name showing up
Hi there from Chiangmai
I had correspondence in recent months with a perfectly normal chap called John Hoekstra.
I have recently noticed that his name is appearing as me in my mail.
For example in the panel above a mail it will say FROM: John Hoekstra instead of me, and I happen to be another John, John WicXXXXXX, confusing recipients more! Something like:
Subject: Question about MPT
From: John Hoekstra
Date: 19 June 2009 14:05:25
What could be the problem and how do I solve it please??
cheers John (not Hoekstra!)

Check your Mail preferences->Accounts, or more likely, your Address Book application. See whether your name in Address Book has a silhouette or a standard card icon. If it has a standard card icon, look for John Hoekstra in there. You can designate a "My Card" from the Card menu at the top of the screen in the menu bar, so to fix it, select your vCard in Address Book and then go to the Card menu->Make This My Card. Not sure how it happened in the first place, but this should fix it.

Hello Jedi Meister
thanx so much
I changed the address book thing and not only the new mail I wrote changed, but looks like all the past mail in my INBOX and SENT too! It must assign the name, wrong or right, from the address book to the actual email address and just tell you that name. If it's wrong, as mine was, it's wrong. Make it right and it's right!
