    Hi folks,

    When I receive a message, the to: field now says 'Holidays in United Kingdom' instead of my name. I've checked my accounts in system preferences, I've checked the preference panel in Mail, and I've checked my accounts remotely (iCloud and Google Apps for Work) and I can't find where this is being set. It's happening with multiple senders so I'm certain the problem is at my end.

    Any ideas?


    Cheers,
    Rab

    Did you check how you are setup in contacts, i.e., the address book controls how your name is being seen on emails.

    Yep, no sign of that string in my address book.
