    Not sure where to start with this one...

    I recently got my mother an iPad, she loves it and is actually able to join the rest of civilization and do stuff like email and go online.

    But after a while and all of a sudden, her email messages show up in my inbox and as well as everone elses with my "name" on them. It's still her email address but with my name displayed instead. How do you change what "name" is attached with an email address?

    On her iPad, go into Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calenders, choose the account (there will probably only be one), and depending on the account, tap name and change the name, or tap Account, Mail under Advanced, then Name.

    Ah, got it. Thanks!

    I wonder how it got changed. No way she could've done it manually.
