I list my iCould or ME email in my mailbox as "xxxx@me.com". I recently logged out and then back into iCloud and now the email appears at iCloud. I don't see the option to rename it "xxxx@me.com".

Small (but annoying matter) - any help is appreciated!

Thanks.

You can choose whether you want to send a mail as icloud.com or me.com as you write one.

OP, do you mean the description for the mailbox? Like "work" or "personal"?

For some reason, my main iCloud email inbox just says "iCloud", instead of "personal".

If that's the case, it did the same thing to me.

Thanks. I have selected to send as "xxx@me.com". My issue is with the way the account appears when one opens the Mail app. I use to be able to alter the description or how it appears (be it "iCloud" or "xxxx@me.com" but somehow with the iCloud account, I cannot.

I think we're on the same page.

It's a bug.
