This tutorial provides the steps on how to change your display name in EdMail.
Step 1: Users must enter an EdMail User Account ID and password to access EdMail.
Note: You will need to put in your full EdMail address. Example: Username@edmail.edcc.edu
Warning: To keep your personal account information safe, ensure the "Stay signed in" check box remains unchecked whenever you use a public computer.
Step 2: Select the gear symbol in the upper right corner and choose Settings.
Step 3: Select the “Accounts” tab across the top of the Settings page.
Step 4: On this page, scroll down until you see the “Send mail as” option.
Step 5: Click the link to the right of this option to bring up the “Edit email address window”.
Step 6: To change your current EdMail display name, select the radio button beneath the default name. Enter in a new name in which you would like to be displayed as in the text box.
Step 7: Click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page to save.
Step 8: When sending messages, they will now be sent under your new display name.
Note: This change will not be retroactive. That is, previous messages or messages from your contacts may still show your old display name. It may also be necessary for you to email these contacts and suggest they save your updated contact information.
