  1. Mail desktop app and account sender name


    Not sure if this has been posted before, but the mail app sends out my name as "RobertXPS13" How can I change this? I'm using this Gmail account to send out professional emails and it looks bad that I have that as my alias. I'd appreciate any help!

  2. W10 Mail App displays sender as "name(at)outlook.com ON BEHALF OF name(at)mydomain.nl"

    This problem presents itself in the Windows 10 Mail app and does not show up on Outlook.com

    I use Outlook.com in combination with a connected account name(at)mydomain.nl

    Since last december there has been a change in the way the Mail app is displaying the sender address.

    Before Christmas it would just state: "name(at)mydomain.nl"

    After Christmas the Mail app displays the sender as "name(at)outlook.com on behalf of name(at)mydomain.nl"

    At oulook.com

    • I have deleted my connected accounts and re-installed them again.
    • I have also set and reset the Default sender address a number of times.
    • With little improvement.

    I suspect that the W10 Mail app is be a bit off in displaying the original sender address where it should show the return address like other mail clients do.

    Why Can't You Change 'Sender' Name In Mail App??


    With Microsoft saying Live Mail won't work soon, and to switch over to the Mail app, I've done just that. Although currently, Live Mail is still working fine. What annoys me is. Is that I cannot whatsoever change my sender name via Mail app, when sending emails. It basically displays the name I have on my MSN/Microsoft profile. I even changed that, but it hasn't updated. If I add another non Hotmail account to the app, I have the choice to display the name I wish. Microsoft really piss me off. Live Mail works fine. And now they're saying it's going to be made redundant pretty much, and now I switch over, I can't even change my display name?? They really are morons. If it's not broken. Why fix it?!
