Change Display (From) Name in RacerMail

RacerMail users can change their display name (what appears in the "From" field of emails you send) in the RacerMail Google mail interface. 

  • In RacerMail, click on the "cog" or "gear" icon in the upper right corner, then select See all settings.
  • Click the Accounts tab.
  • In the Send mail as section, click edit info next to the address.
  • In the "Name" section, specify what you'd like your name to be and click Save changes.

This will not change how your name is displayed if someone already has you in their contact list, and it will not change your name when someone is typing your name in the "To" field in a new email after clicking "Compose."

If you are using a mobile device or an email client (such as Outlook) to send email, this will not change the display name for emails sent from those devices/clients.
