When your own name is misspelled in Windows Live Mail
A: When you’ve accidentally misspelled your own name in your e-mail program, how do you correct the mistake?
If you’re using Windows Live Mail, the free e-mail program I cover in Windows 7 For Dummies, changing your own misspelled name is fairly easy. Follow these steps to correct or change your name in Windows Live Mail:
- Click the Start menu, and choose Windows Live Mail.
- Click the Tools menu, and choose Accounts from the drop-down menu.
- Click the e-mail account you want to change, and click the Properties button.
- Click in the Name box, change the name to its proper spelling, and click the OK button to save your changes.
Windows Live Mail will update your e-mail’s “From” name to its latest spelling.
Using a program other than Windows Live Mail? Let me know, and I’ll add that program’s steps to this post.
