What I wanted to say is that I don't understand, why do you use mintty in this
specific case.

Can you provide a bit more background? Do you use it exclusively to call SSH
to some remote host?

If it wouldn't be a big thing to ask of you, could you please configure your
email client to properly fill your "from" name?
I'm not very comfortable talking to email :)
