    can anyone tell me (step by step preferably) how I can change the info given in the From" line in a sent email ? I would prefer only my email to appear, not my name, it leads to all sorts of people I don't know addressing me by my christian name and I don't like it ! Only my iPad does this,not my iPhone and I can only suppose this is to do with how the iPad is set up. I would appreciate the help.

    If I have read your question correctly, go to Settings > Mail > (mail account in question) > Account

    In there, the top row should say 'Name' and it will probably be filled in. Remove the name and add in whatever you want.

    If i've misinterpreted you, my apologies and please let me know where I went wrong.

    In addition, any recipient who knows you will more than likely add your name in association with your email address in their contact list, and therefore, when they receive any email messages from the email address you send, your name, however they have it listed in their contact list, will appear in the from field.
