Ive got an email contact with the email address careers@example.com , but for some reason in the "display name" for their email address in OSX mac mail, it shows up as "Studio - Example".

Here is what happens when i input the email address :

If i right click the "display name, i can "edit address"

Which will open the text edit options in the screenshot below, which works for this time, but next time i enter the email address again, i get the same issue.

Any ideas ?

    Have you added it to contacts and changed the display name there? – Steve Chambers Jul 11 at 18:03

It looks like this is the display name associated with that email address, as set by the email owner. You have no control over this unless/until you add it as a contact and override the display name. This is why when you get an email from a brand new address you typically see a display name instead of the raw email address.
