Outlook transmits full name?

  compumac 22:30 21 Sep 2010

I use Microsoft Outlook for my e-mails and only found today, on using Teamviewer to help someone out and viewing their screen from mine, that when I send them an e-mail my full name appears on their received e-mail (from me) in front of my e-mail address. I have looked through the settings in my Outlook and can find no reference to this.

It is Outlook 2007, and had seen that entry but did not realise that the entry for your name was actually transmitted. After so may years using PC's and especially Outlook I must slap my wrist!!!
