    Each time I send an email from my handset, using 'mail' not googlemail app. My email address comes up as my username.

    Does anyone know how to change this to a preferred username instead of a mail address?

    Thanks in advance

    This is what worked for me.

    On my computer, I opened my browser and logged into my Gmail account. In Gmail, I selected 'Settings', then selected the tab for 'Accounts and Import'. I then changed my default 'Send Mail As' setting and Gmail on my phone seems to use this setting somehow.

    Thanks mate

    I managed to sort it on the handset about 2 mins ago. I went through the whole process again and noticed that I had not changed my username at the end.

    Thanks for the info though
