    For some reason, in my Entourage 2008 sent items, it lists my name incorrectly. I have checked all of the Account Settings in Entourage and everything is set correctly. This is running off of an Exchange server and I have confirmed that the name is set correctly there. E-mails sent from my account list my name correctly, I just cant figure out where this wrong name is coming from. Please take a look at the attachment and let me know if you have any further questions.

    wrong name

    I have the exact same issue. My wife's name is shown instead of mine. This only the case on one computer. All the other's show the correct name. We also use MS Exchange.

    Did you ever get resolution?

    I'd very much like to know too. My SO's name appears instead of my own in all Entourage traffic. Google has turned up little that is useful.

    Got it sorted. On the message (pre)view window, right click on the name in the To or From field and select 'Edit This Contact' from the pull down menu. Then proceed to delete the offending name. I still have no idea how the names got intermixed in the first place.

    Right, I had to go through my notes before I posted, but you are correct. This is a problem with the "ME" record in Entourage. You need to update it with the correct name and then everything will display properly.
