If your email recipients see only part of your name, such as your first name, but you want them to see your full name, you can easily make the desired change. The display might show only part of your name if you did not type your full name when you first set up your email account.

Note: If you are using a Microsoft Exchange account, you cannot change the display name. Only your Exchange administrator can make this change.
