    I have gmail set up on my iphone and I just noticed that when I receive an email from someone the name that appears as sender is not what I have set up in my address book but what they have selected in their email account!!

    Example. My friend is saved under "Emily Prevost" but when I get emails from her, it shows "emily" ....

    Any way to fix this??? it is very annoying !!

    thanks in advance

    Do you have nickname entries in your contacts ?

    what do you mean ? I dont think so... I have them save with First Name/Last name but when I get emails from them it shows the name they picked themselves in their mail client!!
