    Hello everyone!

    I just recently got an ipad 2 and I've noticed that when I send an email my name appears as "retire" instead of my actual last name, which is Ertmer. I've tried adding my name as a contact and as a phrase to counteract what I can only assume is auto correct issues. Still nothing is changed. anyone have any ideas?

    Try going to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > tap your Mail account > Account > Mail under "Advqanced", then check the Name field. Well, that's for an iCloud account, other types of email accounts seem to have the Name field in different places, but the point is, find the Name field and see what it says.
