How to hide first/last name in the outgoing mail, to make only username displayed

How to hide first/last name in the outgoing mail, to make only username displayed

I created another email mailbox with different username (i.e. "otheruser@comcast.net") and sent test message to my main mailbox.

My full name is displayed in the From: field of the received message.

I saved the incoming email address as a new user, removed full name, and added "otheruser" into the Name field, then saved the address in the address book.

Sent another message from that address, and still have my full name revealed.

 

I'd like to set it in such a way, that ony username is shown (i.e. otheruser@comcast.net).

What should I do to achieve my goal?
