Changing name attached to e-mail

Changing name attached to e-mail

This is a small issue but it's driving me nuts.  The XFINITY account is in my husband's name.  So, my e-mail address - which is unique to me - reads like this: From: JOHN DOE [mailto: janedoemail@comcast.net]

 

This results in me often getting e-mails which read: Dear John - even from friends.  How can I change the text to read Jane Doe instead of John?

Re: Changing name attached to e-mail

If you are still on the old email format, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>>Mail>>>>>>Composing.  The first item at the top is where you can change the outgoing name.  If you are on the new format, open a Compose page.  At the end of the From: field click on the down arrow, then on "Edit names".

That was ridicuoously simple...and impossible for me to find on the company site
