    Hi everyone,

    First time poster and actually just converted to Mac after being on Windows my whole life. I had a quick question if you guys could help me out.

    I'm using the message app that comes preloaded with the Macbook Pro's and I don't like how it comes up as my email address when sending messages. Is there anyway to create a nickname or make it come up as just my name when I send messages from my Macbook?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Go into your contacts app. You should have yourself as a contact in there, add the email address to that contact.

    If its not already a contact, the make yourself a new contact, put your name and email address. I think that should work.

    Thank you for your help. This doesn't work on my machine, but if the person I'm chatting with does that it works.

    This is what I'm looking for so thanks again.
