How to change name on AOL email account
This page has step by step instructions on changing the display name on an AOL email account. The instructions and the screenshots have been worked out on the AOL Standard webmail version, so if you are using the Basic or the Accessible version, please switch now. You can do so by clicking the link located at the bottom of the page.
Modify the display name for your AOL email address
Do I need to explain why is it important that you change the display name? Probably not! So I'll spare you of that and dig right it. Please refer the screenshots if you have any doubts.
- Launch the web browser and point it to the AOL login page.
- Enter your username and password and sign in.
- Change the interface to "Standard" if you are using Basic or Accessible. The link is at the bottom of the page.
- Once in the Standard interface, click "Options" and select "Settings" [Slide 1].
- On the "General" page, ensure the box in the "Send Name Display" section is checked [Slide 2]. Recipients will, thus, get to see your name at their accounts instead of the AOL email address.
- Move to the "Compose" section and check the value in the "Display Name" field [Slide 3].
- To change, simply delete it and type in your real name in the way you want [Slide 4].
- Scroll down and click the "Save" button to verify the modifications you have made [Slide 5].
That's it! Your name will now be modified in the AOL account. To test this out, send an email to someone you know and confirm what appears in "From" at their account.
Comments, questions, feedback... whatever!
