When you send an email to the same address that you’re writing from, the sender line will appear a little differently. It won’t display your name, but it will display Note to Self as the sender. It’s a handy feature for reminding yourself of small tasks throughout the day. Note to Self is easily visible as you scroll through your inbox.

Note to Self on iOS

Note: Your name will appear normally if you send an email to one of your other email addresses, even if they are both linked in Outlook for iOS.

Example: John Doe is at work and sends himself an email from his work inbox to his own inbox,, Note to Self appears as the sender. However, if John sends it to his alternate personal email address, the email will still appear in the inbox but the display name will show as John Doe.
