    Something weird happened when I upgraded my iPad. I moved my email to use Microsoft Exchange. Now the "sender name" is no longer my name, but rather my email account user name.


    Here are my settings as shown on my iPad 1 under Settings=>mail, contacts, calendars =>(my microsoft exchange email account)=> click on account name:
    Email: john at johnsmithesquire.com
    Server: webmail.easyspace.com
    username: RFDf4tG&B5joh at johnsmithesquire.com
    Password: ************
    Use SSL: OnS/Mime: Off


    When I send a mail from my iPad 1 the sender name is not my email address, but rather my user name. The "from" field shows my emails as being from "RFDf4tG&B5joh at johnsmithesquire.com".


    I can't change the username otherwise it can't get or send emails at all. Any ideas how I can send mails from my own name again?

    Did you perform the upgrade to iOS5 and migrate to Microsoft Exchange at the same time?
