    It would help if you told us what email program you are using....

    What program are you using to send e-mails? In Apple Mail, click on the Mail menu, then Preferences. Select the desired account in the Accounts pane, and then in the "Account Information" subpane, remove the entry in "Full Name".

    Okay, so you are using Mail, correct? If so, follow my instructions above. Or is it a web-based mail interface through Safari? Unless you've installed some other e-mail program on your computer, those are likely the only two options we could be talking about.

    Note: For future reference, in nearly all Mac applications (those that follow the design guidelines, anyway), pressing "Cmd-," brings up the preferences pane.
