Have a look at these mskb articles for outlook 2000 which describes why the old mans names is printed . could'nt find any for oxp

You may be able to print out each email by going here and trying to change the name in there but it won't stay that way .
If the email is in HTML format try this: Open the email,
File -> Page Setup -> Memo Style -> remove the data you don't want in the Header field

If the email is in Plain Text format try this: Open the
email, File -> Page Setup -> Memo Style (you might need to
click on the Edit button) -> select Header/Footer tab ->
remove the data from the Header field
