PreCentral: Change your Email account "From" name

Recommended Posts

Set email From nameWith webOS synergy you can have up to 16 different email accounts loaded up on your webOS device. Choosing which email account to send a message from is only a tap away, but did you know that you can control the name (if any) that shows up on other people's email program that is attached to your email address. In most cases when communicating with friends or business associates, you probably want your actual name displayed alongside your email address. But if you are replying to a mass email with people you don't know, entering an email-based contest or sending a note to a random business/website you are not familiar with, you may not want your real name disclosed to them.

Unfortunately, this change requires more than just a tap to update, but it's still pretty easy to do and can be assigned per email account, similar to how you set a reply-to address. To change your email account's "From" name:

  • Open the Email app
  • Swipe down from the top-left to access the Application drop-down menu and select "Preferences & Accounts"
  • Scroll down to the ACCOUNTS section and tap the account you want to update
  • Scroll down to the FULL NAME section and name that you want people to see when you send them an email
  • Swipe back (on phones) or tap Done (on the TouchPad) to return to the Preferences screen
  • If necessary, repeat for any other email accounts you want to update
  • Swipe back (on phones) or tap Done (on the TouchPad) again to return to the email app

Note that if you are listed as a contact in the recipient's email program, their name for you may override any setting that you make here.

Thanks to webOS Nation reader pro2 who posing this question in our comments on a previous tip

    • Question: Anyone else having issues with the WebOS?

      Hi everyone, I’m new on here and just trying to figure out what is going on with my TV. It’s a 65” E8 that I purchased new back in March of last year. I never really had any issues until recently (a month or so). I updated the OS as usual and honestly didn’t pay much attention until the next day I was attempting to login to WebOS and I keep getting “LG CONTENT STORE: Content is unavailable. No content”. I always keep it updated and had Geek Squad do a calibration on it about 3 months ago; which

    • Question: WebOS update and 49SM8600

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog
