    Mail not showing "send mail as" name for gmail accounts


    I use two gmail accounts and each has a "send mail as" name specified, meaning when I send an e-mail, the recipient will see the sender as being the name I specified, rather than just my e-mail address.

    When I send mail from gmail, this works, but when I send mail from gmail via Mail it always just shows the e-mail address, not the name.

    On the other hand, all hotmail accounts I use show the name fine.

    I checked in manage accounts->change mailbox sync settings and both accounts have "send your messages using this name" specified correctly, but the name still doesn't show.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    :)

  2. "Send as" name not appearing

    I use a gmail account and I have specified in gmail a certain display name, meaning, when I send someone mail from that account, in the recepient's inbox, this display name will appear as the sender's (my) name.

    When I send mail from gmail this works, but when I send mail from Win10's Mail app it just shows my e-mail address, instead of the display name.

    When I go to "manage accounts" in Mail and I click on this gmail account and I click on "change mailbox sync settings," under "send your messages under this name" it shows the right name, the one I specified in gmail, however, that display name is never
    shown when I send mail via Mail.

    Anyone know what might be the problem?

  3. I mixed up two microsoft accounts when installing them

    Yes that is what I am experiencing.

    If I go to outlook.com on the website it shows my gmail profile. The only "from" address is my gmail address. I sent an email from there and it came into my normal gmail inbox as being sent from "ME"
