When I send someone an email it is giving someone else's name in their inbox.  I do not know where this name has come from.  I have looked at my settings and that has my name in it.

Hi,

In your inbox, go to Settings > More Settings. Choose Mailboxes, select your account, then you can update your sending name under "Your name".

If you're using an email client (like Outlook or Thunderbird) you need to change your sending name directly in that client.

If the wrong name is showing on your emails, check the "Send mail as" section in your email settings. Ensure the correct name is associated with your email address. Additionally, verify any linked accounts or aliases that might be causing the issue.
