FIX: Displaying the Wrong "From" on iPad Email

November 5, 2012 / Updated: November 5, 2012 / Lena Shore


Hi Lena. Recently my iPad 2 started inserting “iPad” in “From” field, when I send from iPad as opposed to laptop. This has caused some problems with people thinking messages are Spam. Do you know how I can fix this so my appears instead?


  • Fire up your iPad an go to Settings –> Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  • Select the email account that is displaying incorrectly.
  • Click “Account”
  • Change the “Name” and “Description” as needed.
