There are two places this could be happening. Firstly you have a global user details setting in SourceTree. This can be found in the SourceTree menu then "Preferences" (or Cmd+,) and you'll see at the top which user details are used.
If these are correct then there are repository-level settings instead allowing you to override the global settings per-repository. You can find these by going to either the "Repository" menu (when the repo window is open) and hitting "Repository Settings" or clicking the "Settings" button on the toolbar of the repository window on the right hand side. Click on the "Advanced" tab and you'll see some further author details. If the checkbox "Use global user settings" is turned off then it'll be using those author details instead.
Hope that helps!
Thank you for your response! This helped, though I should mention...
I checked both settings, and both showed identical author name & email, but only when I uncheck "Use global user setting" does the commit author change as expected. And, in order for the "Use global user setting" to work when checked (even though both showed the same info), I needed to edit the Default user info and just re-enter the same info.
I can confirm this is the case. Version 184.108.40.206 of SourceTree.
You have to clear the "Default User Information" save, then re-type and save before it will update and correctly use this for commits on Repos that are set to use the default info.
Issue still exists in 220.127.116.11. Glad for the workaround mentioned by David. I had to delete my email address from the Default User Information field, apply, open, type in same email address as appeared there before, apply. Now the commit dialog shows the correct info.
