    What device are you on? I don't see a way to delete the "From:" section and add anything in. All I get is the option to switch email accounts.

    I don't have a clue to what you're saying in your post. The thread question asks "why does the email app send out [your] name in every email"? The name and/or email address is sent so that the recipient can know from whom the email was sent.

    Open settings:

    Go to Passwords & Accounts

    Tap on the email you want to remove the name from

    Tap on Account

    Remove your name in there or enter whatever you’d like

    Tap Done

    I don't think that works. The name it shows the recipient, is the name one has for themself in their contact card. You may be right if that email address is not listed in the contact card.
    Just tested it. It shows the name in contacts, but if the email address is not in the contact, it shows as you said.

    If I leave the field blank that I mentioned in my last post and send an email to myself, all I see is my email address and not my name. I used to see my name before I made this change a few months back. Are you referring to the email client contact card, or the phone “contacts” contact card (if that makes sense)?

    Edit: Saw your edit and tried this as well just to confirm. Same result.

    Yeah, the phone contacts. If the email address is in the contacts, that's what it shows on emails sent.
