Changing the name tied to my email

I have had my email address for many years - all of the sudden my husband's name is showing up along with the email address in the "from" field when sending emails. How can I change this?

To Change Your Email Display Name, you will need to make sure you are logged into Currently. From there, simply follow these instructions:

  1. Select the gear , and then More Settings.
  2. Choose Mailboxes.

  3. In the Mailbox list, select the email address you want to change the display name for.

  4. Edit Your name. This is the name that shows when other people get your emails. You can also edit your Account Description, Reply-to address, or Signature.

  5. Select Save.

Let us know if this helps!
