Default 8700g Email Appearance

Please Login to Remove!

When sending a message from Outlook it appears on the receiving persons computer with my full name in the from field (Last, First), however, if it comes from my Blackberry the from field simply has my email address (name@domain.com). Is there a way to change it so that it sends the message with my full name in the from field? I have an 8700g with T-Mobile in a non-BES environment.

Thanks

Indeed.

While I'm not familiar with Tmo BIS, I'm sure it's the same.

Log in to your T-Mobile Web Client, go to options, and look for your name as it appears when an e-mail is sent. You can change it to whatever you want. In Cingular, it's called "Friendly Name".

Hope that helps.

It's weird my IMAP email account lets me change the display name, however, the exchange account does not have a full name field.
