I've been puzzling over this one for a while.  A user is logged in as herself, yet her email printouts are titled Administrator.

Our network is Win2k Advanced Server running Exchange 2000, desktops are WinXP Pro os and suite.

Any ideas on how to get her emails to print with her user name?

Outlook's printed email headers and footers use the fields associated with the default email account for the user account.

To verify:

1. Open Outlook > TOOLS > ACCOUNT > click on mail tab
2. Under "Account" look for the default email account [ie; Administrator (default)]

This is the name that will appear in the upper left corner of the printed email.  To change this, either change the name of the account to the user's name or change the default email account to the user's email account.


Hope this helps!

I tried the suggestions following this thread and they did not work for me.  What I finally ended up doing to solve this problem was:

1. I had the user log onto their computer and then opened Control Panel and then Mail.
2. Click on Email Accounts
3. Select View or change existing e-mail accounts, click Next
4. Click Change and change the User Name to someone else.
5. Try to open Outlook which doesn't work then follow the same steps and change the User Name back to the user and now Administrator is replaced by the user name.

Good Luck!
