i use several accounts on Mail. 

 

Since a recent update, when i send an email from a Gmail, the human-name displayed on the received email is the human-name from a DIFFERENT ACCOUNT. 

 

Multiple accounts are getting the same wrong name. It seems it might be Microsoft is applying my Microsoft account name to all my email accounts. THAT'S WRONG.

I have tried removing and re-adding accounts, but it didn't fix the problem 

 

This appears to happen with Gmail accounts added with the automatic Gmail button. There's no option to edit the send-name.

The problem doesn't affect Gmail accounts added as IMAP. 

 

Any fix?

thx

Firstly, this is public forum and please hide your complete email address from images and reupload them. Right now, your image is visible to everyone and it might be used for spamming.

Are you referring to Mail App in Windows 10?

It should show the name of the one who sent email regardless to your account.

Try open Microsoft Store and check for update.

@Reza Ameri i edited my question.

Uninstalling and re-installing Mail didn't fix the problem. 

thx
