I tried to use OS X's Mail.app, but when I connected it using gmail, the authentication window showed my real name in Chinese character in the first text field. The other two fields are mail and password, so I didn't log in to my gmail account yet. However, it looks like the Mail.app already knows my real name, and I wonder where it gets the information from.

My Apple account and iCloud account use my real name in English. So I want to check out where my Chinese character name was found and then fix it and change it to English.


This is pulled from your 'me' contact in Contacts.app.

  • Thanks. I didn't remember there is me contact in the Contacts.app and my email there was the one that was deleted 3 years ago... – Blaszard Sep 22 '14 at 5:42
