How do I send emails showing my email address but hiding my name ?

I know it can be done cause I had it set up that way when I first opened my 
email account several years ago. A friend didn't believe it was me emailing 
him so I set it to show my name. Now it has been so long I forgot how to set 
it back. Can anyone help me with this please & thank you!

Version of Outlook? Basically, you need to go into your email account 
settings (Tools, Accounts) and open the account and change the display name.

Changing Server Name
I set up an Exchange 2003 server. While messing around with the settings, I realized I did not like the name of the machine, so I changed it. But, in ESM, it still shows the old server name.

No message in outbox
I tried to send a message with 1Mb attachment to 40 recipients in the bcc field. It gave me an error message from the isp's server, the message was NOT sent (I've checked), it did NOT arrive in Sent Items, but neither is it in the Outbox any more. I can send and receive email successfully. Problem is, every few minutes Outlook tells me it's sending message 1 of 1, it fails and gives me the same error message. Yet there is no message in the Outbox. But what happened to the original message when it first failed to send? I guess it's 'stuck' somewhere but I can...

Send and Recieve Fix
For a long time I had a problem with my Send/Recieve function in Outlook. This happended in both Outlook 2000 and my current version - 2007.

After extensive Internet and News Group research I decided it was time to run a check on disk errors. This Windows XP facility seemed to have fixed my Outlook problem. I did this about a few months ago now and I have since had no problems with my send and recieve. Unfortunately I do have ...

Working with names
I'm working in a worksheet plenty of named ranges. When I change a name of a range or cell, the formulas referring that range don't reflect tha change of the name (they keep the old name). May you suggest me a procedure to reflect automatically those changes? No, Excel doesn't change your formulas when you change a name. In fact it doesn't have a "change a name" feature as such. You must accomplish that by selecting the range and defining the new name. At that point you have two named ranges, the original and the new one. Then you would delete the old one from ...

What was Outlook sending?
Hi, I downloaded my messages using the option "send and receive all". However, the "Show Progress" box indicates that I was also 'sending something'. But I had nothing to send! I look in the "Sent items' folder and nothing was sent at this time. What was Outlook 2003 doing? Santista The usual response here is, "You have a virus". It could be that a virus program is using your Outlook to send spam and/or a copy of itself to people in your address book.
