Customizing the sender name with an email client
Posted on 2014-04-10
Let's say email@example.com regularly sends emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ann, as the email recipient, can configure her email client (Outlook, iOS email client, Yahoo web client...) to show the sender as "Joe" rather than "email@example.com." Let's say Joe configures his emails to appear as "Joe the Amazing" as the sender. If Ann receives an email from Joe, will "Joe" appear as the sender (her setting) or will "Joe the Amazing" appear as the sender (his setting)?
