At a place of work, you typically are on an Microsoft Exchange server that handles your e-mail. Most of the time, you will be working within Outlook or maybe Windows Mail, two programs that make it very easy to change the sender name in your e-mail account. This is a useful tool if you just got married or need to add a middle initial to alleviate being confused with someone else in the office. Check with your network administrator before attempting to change your name in this program to make sure you are allowed to make this type of change.
