Email Writing Tips
A Personal name is an arbitrary string that many mail programs will allow you to define, which is attached to your e-mail address as a textual comment. Always provide a personal name if your mail system allows it - a personal name attached to your address identifies you better than your email address can on its own. Use a sensible personal name: "Guess who" or other such phrases are annoying as personal names and hinder the recipient's quick identification of you and your message.
The address 'firstname.lastname@example.org' conveys less information than if it were written as 'email@example.com (John Mathews)'
