    Does anyone know how to pull the account name of each alias when sending an email from an iPhone?

    When I Send an email they all send as the main iCloud "account username"

    but I have a main account, a company account and I want the account name of each email address to be difference.

    ie: Main Account: Bob Jackson bjackson@...com
    Account 2: Lotta Toys lottatoys@...com


    I know on my mac mail it does it just fine....

    When I want to use an alias in the second line where it says cc/bcc from I touch that and it expands and puts the from on a line on its own I then touch that and it gives me a list of all my emails and choose which one I want

    I'm having the same problem.
    All alias accounts when sending mail show main account user name as sender.


    Main account: joebloggs@me.com (From - J Bloggs) User Name in Preferences is "J Bloggs "
    1st Alias sparemailbox1@me.com (From- J Bloggs) User Name in Preferences is "mailbox 1"
    2nd Alias sparemailbox2@me.com (From- J Bloggs) User Name in Preferences is "mailbox 2"

    A bit silly having an alias if it reveals your correct name to the recipient. Okay for incoming mail i suppose.
