I have a couple of Gmail accounts along with an iCloud mail account. I use the Apple Mail app on my iMac.
Incoming mail to one of my Gmail accounts has my email address correct, but it displays the name of another person (e.g. Joe Smith) instead of Nick Pappas. This Joe Smith name is the name of a person for whom I recently created a contact card in Contacts recently. In an attempt to get it to display my name, I have done the following:
Deleted Joe Smith from my Contacts.
Deleted Joe Smith from Mail’s Previous recipients.
Checked setting in Mail prefs. All look OK.
Quit and restarted Mail.
Logged into that Gmail account via Safari and could find no relevant setting (like an alias?). Couldn’t find any way to do alias in Gmail, so maybe I missed something.
This problem is not happening in my other Gmail account.
This problem does not occur on my iOS devices where my name is properly displayed in the header.
So this appears as if there is some secret place where Mail app has gotten confused? Any suggestions on where else to look?
