Hi there,

My new iPad is great! BUT my email I send from my iPad is arriving in people's email boxes with the wrong name! Is there a quick fix for this please?

Hello Suzanne! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Yes, there is a quick fix for this. What email is it, such as Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, etc.? Do you use the Mail app, or another email app?

Please try this: on the iPad, please go to Settings, then Mail, Contacts, Calendars
, then tap on your email account, and email address
, then tap on the name box
, then change the name
, then tap on Done.

If needed, you can see the video instructions at the website below:
