    Just wondering...sorry if this is a basic dumb question but I cant seem to find it anymore, like I used to.
    How do I change my email name?
    I have a bunch of emails under my "mailboxes".. my other emails say the actual email name except for my Icloud one. (so my yahoo says email name...not yahoo mail..ect)
    I recently had an issue where I had to delete it off my phone and re-add it...but this time I cant find where to change it from saying "icloud" to my actual email name.

    I went to the usual places like settings..mail app and also my icloud but I dont see where to edit it like in previous ios's.

    thanks,

    Thanks for the reply. I checked and this works for all except for my Icloud account.
    When I try it for my icloud, It takes me to that account where it shows what I want turned on..for syncing..photos..mail..reminders..ect

    Yeah, I don't think you can change the iCloud one. I'm getting the same thing you are. In my email list though, it's listed as iCloud and not my icloud email address.
