    Need to change windows 10 email display name


    Windows 10 Email APP
    I need to update my last name.

    I go to SETTINGS
    MANAGE ACCOUNTS
    There is no box to update ANY name change.
    I could do a work around by deleting and reinstalling the account,
    but that will delete ALL my email.
    Is there a way to get to this in regedit?

    This APP needs an update to allow for these situations.
    And in the mean time will use a dif email app, possibly Mailbird.

    Sigh.*sarc

  2. Microsoft Account Name

    Further troubleshooting...

    Changed my name online. It took some time, but it synced to my Windows 10 and displayed my user name correctly. However, after a couple of hours it reverted back to just displaying my email adress...

    Still in need of a solution!

    Windows 10 Mail app; how to change / update the mail display name ?

    The goal is to change the display name attached to the email address on outgoing emails. This is displayed in the FROM section of the received email as (for example) "John Doe <*** Email address is removed for privacy ***>". So far as I can tell, there is not a way to change what goes
    into the "John Doe" display name, which is very frustrating. This needs to not only be changeable, but changeable for each individual email account used in the Mail app.

    edit:

    I found it for when using third party (not @outlook.com) email addresses in the Mail app:

    • In the Mail app, open Settings (the gear icon).
    • Click 'Manage Accounts'
    • Select the account you want to change the outgoing display name for
    • Click 'options for syncing email, contacts, and calendar'
    • in the account sync settings, there should be a 'Your name' text field that is used as the display name for outgoing emails.
    I'm pretty sure that for @outlook.com emails, it just uses the display name from https://account.microsoft.com account settings.

    Need to change windows 10 email display name

    Pissing me off too. In my Live Mail (which Microsoft told me is being stopped and have to switch over to Mail app), I can change my sender name. But in Mail app, there is no such option to change my sender name!! It's pathetic. I think the sender name is linked to the name you have in your Microsoft profile. But what if you don't want to use that name etc?? I even changed my name anyway, and it never changed it via Mail app.

    To change your email name in in Windows 10 mail:
    Go to settings (the little gear),
    Click on "Manage Accounts",
    Click on the account you want to change,
    Click on "Change Mailbox Sync Settings",(see page snip)

    There will be a box with your name there that can be edited!
    Change your name.
    Push "Done".
    Push "Save".

    Now your new draft will show your name change.*chuckle
    Pass it on!!

    I did that Tobycat. You CAN change name in the Mail app. But you can't with a Hotmail email address. My Live Mail 2012 is still working fine currently! Lol.
