Change your email display name.
Not sure why no one else has this issue but when I send emails my display name is just my email address. I want it to display my name in my recipients inbox otherwise they may think it's spam.
I made sure my name is entered correctly on hotmails site.

Not currently possible to set display names for iCloud accounts, which makes it impossible to use the app at the moment

when setting up an account, you are asked the display name you wish to use. After setting it up, there seems to be no way to change this later unless you delete the account and add it again. BASIC FEATURE!

i am using outlook email as my business email and when i initially created the account i created the user name in my mums name but the email is business oriented and now each time we send an email it appears as my mums name first, the recipient has to click the email for it to then show our email address and this can cause confusion with some of our clients, they may not read the email as it may be spam. i tired changing the name and i have after intensely searching on how to but it still appears in my mothers name. their should be an easy way to change the name with the click of a button in the setting menu. it should be clear and easy.
Using Outlook for Android with a GMAIL account outlook seems to pick up the "display name" from gmail services when you add the account - however you change your personal details in GMAIL it doesn't seem change in OUTLOOK ever and there is no way to edit it yourself.
Also what is even stranger is that it seems to pickup OLD persdonal details for display name in GMAIL from maybe 1 or 2 changes previously. Deleting the gmail accounts on your android device / removing Outlook, even wiping your phone and starting again doesn't seem to fix this at all.
Where does OUTLOOK get the GMAIL display name from exactly ?
Why is it NOT the current name stored under your GMAIL account details?
This is such a terrible terrible piece of software - why can't it correctly pickup the current GMAIL name or just allow you to edit it manually? I hate this software.

I've already uninstalled Outlook for Android from my device and switched to another solution (there are many).
I cannot take the risk of ever sending an email under an inappropriate name (namely, the nickname I used for commeting on YouTube at the time I set up my device).
Microsoft will obviously never fix this.

when I send an e-mail it displays my full name I would like to change that.

Why can't you edit the email sender name on the Outlook app as you can with pretty much every other email app out there?

why does the deleted items folder show my email address for every email instead of the person who sent it?

I changed it once, but forgot how to do it agian.
when I send email, the recipient should see my name instead of my email. This feature ijaz not found in my Outlook App. however in Outlook desktop, it can be changed.

I figured out a workaround! Delete the account and readd it. The display name field is available when adding the account.

Modify the name of the sender.
Can modify the header name of the sent message.
I would like to be able to use a different name on the account, other than the one the address is attached to. I have since changed my name and it is confusing for others who only know me by my new name to receive messages that are from a different name.
