      Re: How to change 'From' name in Sky mail

      You mean when someone gets an email from you it says it's your Sky address as opposed to another address?

      Or do you mean when you read your email replies it says 'me'? As I don't think that can be changed...

      Re: How to change 'From' name in Sky mail

      Hi many thanks for your reply.

      The later, it does not bother me in to see 'me' in my Sent box but I received an email today which had been sent to a few people and at the top where it says who it is from it looks like this

      John Smith to Tom, ****, me, Harry

      I hope that makes sense.

      It just does not look right.

      Does it say that on the email they receive? If it's only in your sent inbox then it's nothing to worry about

      It's a standard Google Mail 'feature'. They substitute your email address with 'me' whereever it appears in the header.
