    But what name is it tagging to the email? Is it a name or is it your .mac username, or is it your email address. Because your name is being tagged to your email due to Mail tagging it into the email for you. As for what .mac has, or even the person you're sending it too, might have a different name for you.

    Dive in to the mail preferences on the .Mac website... you can change your "From" name there.

    From the .Mac mail page, click the Preferences button (its next to the logout button). Click the middle tab (Composing). You'll be able to change your "From" name at the bottom right corner.
