Strange e-mail happening on my iPad

I saw a link to a video  that was on the ZITE app on my iPad, and e-mailed the link to myself on my iPad.   When it appeared on my iPad, it showed the name of someone  else on my contact list as both sender and recipient.  I tried resending several times and the same thing happened.  There seemed to be no way to erase / delete the name before resending it.  So I emptied my iPad inbox, deleted the trash  and tried resending the link to my iPad email and the same thing happened again.

Can anyone tell me what happened and how to get rid of the wrong name that keeps appearing in both sender and recipient ????

Thanks .... this is NOT a BIG DEAL.... but rather strange .

Since you have already deleted the contents of your inbox (which hopefully wasn't propagated via IMAP to your computer), you might as well delete the e-mail account completely and set it up again.

I have no idea whether is was propagated via IMAP on the computer.  As I recall, I set it up on the iPad when I got the iPad a couple of years ago.  I'll try deleting the e-mail account again, but first I'll download some other link and see if it happens again.  Like I said, this is not a BIG deal, just very strange, and I'm just curious to know what happened.  I just e-mailed the link to myself directly from the app.

Thanks for the answer !
