Promote What You Do on the From Line in an Email

Have you sent an email message to yourself from your main email account? You should so you can see what we see. Missteps include your name in all lower case, first name only, initials, etc. I don’t squander this opportunity to promote what I do. When you receive a message from me, it doesn’t just read “Peggy Duncan”. It also promotes who I am and reads “Peggy Duncan, Personal Productivity Expert”.

I use Outlook 2007, and here’s how I set this up for an email account that’s already set up.

  1. From Inbox view, click the Tools menu, Account Settings, double-click the account you want to change.
  2. In the Your Name box, whatever you type here will appear on a recipient’s From line. Click Next when you’re done.


That’s it!
