How can I politely get people to stop using a nickname?

My name is Michael. A very small number of people call me Mike, which I don't regard as my name, but I don't really think it's a big deal. The only time it really bugs me is when they introduce me to other people as Mike or send group e-mails addressed to Mike, because then others think my name is Mike. What is the most polite way to request that someone use my actual name? Do you think this is a petty request? [more inside]
