    Period (.) just explicatively started appearing in front of my email address and name at the receiving end. Causes lots of questions such is this a real address. It is not in my email address (been using this address for years.) The period is not visible when I send the email.

    In a test, I sent an email to myself. the received email has the period in front of my name but not the email address. The address was selected from my address book. I have checked this database and the period is not there. I also scanned outlook (do not remember the file name) using a Microsoft file that scans outlook for problems, came back clean.

    What is going on and how to I fix the problem.

    Can you help.
