As far as I know, incoming mail is not spellchecked. It must be changing to Brian at the senders end. Try mailing yourself.

By email:

'Tried sending an e mail to myself. Name is changed to Brian from Bryan. Most annoying! Thanks for trying - much appreciated. Regards'

Any other ideas, folks?

Long shot but, try putting Bryan as a known word in all spellcheckers/dictionaries that you may have installed.

A spell check would usually provide the option to Change or Ignore, along with the means to retain the particular spelling of Bryan.

Could be your mailbox is named Brian on the server and you get all the mail addressed to your mailbox.
