I want to prevent Gmail from replacing
To: firstname.lastname@example.org with:
To: The fat guy who was near takeshi at the meeting <email@example.com>
I just typed
firstname.lastname@example.org in the compose window, but Gmail expands it with the contact name.
I want to prevent that.
I want Gmail to use
email@example.com, or maybe
Sometimes I meet people and get their email but forget their name, so I write an accurate description in place of the name. But I really don't want the description sent to them:
I never added these names inside Gmail willingly. They are synced from my Android phone (which is not something I asked for).
I can't edit all names, because there are thousands, and actually I need these "easy to remember" names on my Android phone, to know immediately who is calling me.
Maybe the only solution is to abandon Gmail's web interface and switch to Thunderbird?
