    Hey there,

    I've been emailing a professional for a couple of days now - asking some quite specific questions (It's not necessary to know what it's about). Because I didn't know what the consequences of the questions were, I created a random email with a different name.

    It now turns out that I need to submit some official information, and because my case is quite specific, he's going to know that it's me.

    He has called me Zach for around 4 emails - but I haven't said anything. Do I just submit the information, or do I explain that I was worried about the outcome, so I didn't use my real name.

    I'm sure nothing would happen either way, it's just quite awkward if I need to get in touch with him about issues again.

    My idea was just to say that I had been using a friend's email account.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Or perhaps he would just assume that I had an internet pseudonym or that the name I go by is Cody and that my real name is something else?
