Can I change the received name that other people see from my emails just like in outlook express.
In express I just have to change the name in the mail account setting but here I really do not know how?

It is the same in Outlook.  Tools|Accounts, then click on the mail account and click the Properties button.  Change the name in User Information.

Unless, you are using to hit an exchange server or something like that at work.  Then the name has to be changed there by your mail admin.

My mail service is Microsoft Exchange so there is no menu account in tools. Therefore I believe that as you say I can not change it.

Actually, if it is just a preference and is acceptable, you can have your mail admin change it for you.  Just have a talk with them and see.
