Now you can edit account name for outgoing e-mails. You can change:

Account name – this is the name of the e-mail account that is displayed on your phone.

If you followed all the steps, your e-mail account is now attached to a device. The account will now synchronise with a device, and after a few minutes it will be ready to receive, display, send messages and, you will be able to manage your account from the device. If you receive an email, the notification will be visible at the top of the screen (notification bar).
