Email - Name Change

I've had a email account for years and would like to keep it.  However, the email address contains my name - and now my last name has changed.  Can I change the name?

We'd be happy to assist with editing the name people see on emails you send, @rkharper.


You can do this by following these simple steps to change your display name:

  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 you have any other questions or concerns.
