    Look in your WLM settings....
    Tools - Accounts - youraccount - Properties - General
    is your User Information correct?

    Click on Tools, then Accounts, then your email account, then Properties.
    Correct it on this page, then click Apply, OK, and Close. This should
    correct it going out; but to also correct it coming in, you need to ask the
    senders to correct it in their Contacts file.

    The real question is, which spelling of your name is registered with your
    mail provider (which I assume is AT&T/Yahoo). You can't just correct a
    misspelling if that means you will no longer receive email.
    AT&T/Yahoo allows up to 10 sub-accounts, so you can add additional
    accounts with any name you want, but they must be duly registered with
    the provider.

    The email address is correct.
    The question is how to correct the display name.
    Correcting the display name is not going to affect the receiving of email.

    Roberta,
    Is this a pop3 account?
    Are accessing the account using WLM?

    You're right. I misread the problem statement.

    btw, Roberta, it's a bad idea to post your real email address in newsgroups,
    the spambots will pounce.
