    Earthlink Email, Why Does My "Sent From" Change


    Hello All,

    I have a little mystery that I would like to solve. My sister-in-law has an Earthlink email account and when she sends someone an email they sometimes see a very odd sender's name. Her name is "Debbie Smith" and when she sends out an email, half the time the person that receives the email sees that it was sent from "Debbie Smith." For some reason that I can not figure out, about half the time that she sends out an email the recipient seems that "Diabetes Ssmith" sent the email. The last name is misspelled and the first name has been changed.



    This has been going on for over half a year but it is not consistent. What could be causing this? How do fix it?





    :)

    How do I stop email from automatically deleting when I leave the email app

    How do I stop the Windows Phone email app from automatically emptying my "Deleted" folder? I am not sure when it does this but when it does, the email is also deleted from both the EarthLink (POP3) and Outlook servers. So then those emails are not available
    to download to my PC later. On my previous smartphones (LG and iPhone) I could select a setting that left emails on the server regardless of what I did on my phone.

    Email syncing

    Just upgraded to Windows 10. Can't get incoming mail from my earthlink account. Got error message 0x80048811 "This POP3 server does not support partial message retrieval." My gmail account synced fine. Any suggestions?

  4. Earthlink Email, Why Does My "Sent From" Change

    Hi Rocky.

    You didn't mention what she is actually using to get Earthlink email. By that I mean is it a browser, mail app, PC program like Outlook?

    Does she send mail only from one computer or does she use a tablet or phone to augment.

    Need to narrow this puzzle down. I would even change signatures on different platforms so you know for sure where it was sent from.

    Is there any commonality to who receives what. Like do you always get the right spelling and is there another person that always gets the wrong spelling?
